A Drop in the Ocean - Summer  2022

For the summer term the Year 2 topic is “A Drop in the Ocean”. The children will be finding out about the history of the seaside as well as researching different sea creatures and creating amazing information posters. At home, the children have created some fantastic model lighthouses, beach huts and information posters all about the ocean. They are proudly on display in the KS1 library area for everyone to enjoy. In science they will be learning all about plants, including going on a scavenger hunt and learning how seeds germinate by growing their own flowers.  This term the children will start swimming lessons and build their confidence in the water.




Inventors and Pioneers - Spring Term 2022

This term, as part of our Inventors and Pioneers topic, Year 2 will be visiting the Herstmonceux 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 open to parents towards the end of the term. We can’t wait to see what amazing ideas they come up with!



Fire and Ice - Autumn Term 2021

The Year 2 children have already created the WOW factor in our learning environment with their homework! 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.
