Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 and…

Welcome to Summer! 

This term, we’ll be kicking off our brogues, donning our flip-flops and sauntering to the beach under the blazing hot British sun! (And we’ll be doing a lot of learning along the way!)

From Hove to Rio, we’ll be exploring the World’s seasides in style. It won’t all be sunbathing though!

We’re going to be learning all about the wonderful sculptures of Henry Moore and Andy Goldsworthy and creating our own art out of both clay and natural materials.


We’ll be reading and writing stories about magical objects and events, producing exquisite poetry and writing all about Brighton in the Victorian Times – inspired by our trips to the beach.

We’ll continue our beach-based adventures in Computing, when we’ll be creating persuasive presentations about Brighton & Hove’s main attractions and using spreadsheets to solve a dastardly mystery.

We might even find time between the 7th and 17th of May to do some National Curriculum Assessments (sorry!), but these won’t be allowed to get in the way of our fun! As always, our priority is the well-being and happiness of the children and we’ll work very hard to make this assessment period as stress-free as possible.

Please let us know if you have any beach-related stories or experiences to share and, as always, we’d love any volunteers to come and do some reading with the children or join us on our trips.

Thanks and happy sunbathing!
