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 the artwork of Barbara Hepworth and Andy Jordan and creating our own art out of both clay and natural materials.




Once we have Jonny Baxter home safe and sound on Brighton Beach, we’ll be reading and writing stories about magical objects and events, producing exquisite poetry and writing all about famous Brighton tourist attractions.

We’ll continue our beach-based adventures in Computing, where we will be using excel to create a spreadsheet to help our local ice cream shop with their ordering!

In our history topic we will be travelling back in time to look at Martha Gunn and Prince Regent and what Brighton was like in the past.

We might even find time between the 9th and 27th 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!
