Summer Term 2018: Beside the Sea
We’ve just launched our summer term topic ‘Beside The Sea’!  Our classrooms are already full of amazing models of lighthouses that the children crafted over their Easter holiday. During the term the children will be learning about plants and visiting Shoreham beach to learn about the special protected habitat along the local shoreline. They will be learning all about the seaside to inspire a variety of creative writing, science and art activities. Also, look out for the dates of our class assemblies for parents in June!

Class Assemblies: 2NO: TUESDAY 26th June, 2KB: WEDNESDAY 27th June (please note these are amended dates to those previously advertised)

Spring Term 2018: Inventors and Pioneers

This term, as part of our ‘Inventors and Pioneers’ topic, Year 2 will be visiting the Herstmonceaux Science Centre and Observatory to get their hands on some incredible inventions to see how they work. Throughout their learning at school, they will be preparing work from across the curriculum to be displayed at an Exhibition that will be held parents towards the end of the term. We can’t wait to see what amazing ideas they come up with!

Trip: Thursday 1st February 2018 - Herstmonceaux Science Centre
WOW Day - Exhibition (2pm) Tuesday 27th March

Autumn 2017:

The Year 2 children have already created the WOW factor in our learning environment with their amazing model fire engines, art and information posters! This term in Fire and Ice, they will first learn about the historical events of the Great Fire of London, using drama and written work to create story booklets and bring them to life. There will be a Year 2 ‘Bakers Day’ and children will work in teams to make and bake their own delicious bread rolls. After half-term, in our ICE topic and related science work, the children will learn about how animals are adapted to life in cold habitats and create snowy scenes in their artwork. 

Trip: Farm to Fork (Tesco's, Shoreham) 11th or 12th October depending on class
