Y2 Bridlington Trip - Thursday 21st July

Dear Parent/Carer

As part of our new topic, ‘Hot and Cold Deserts!’ We are excited to inform you that all the year 2 classes will be going on a school visit to the seaside in Bridlington! We hope to make a memorable day for the children and further their understanding of life at sea and on the coast.    

The children will have a full day on the beach making sandcastles, paddling in the sea; picnic lunch and a whole year group sing song! The visit will take place on Thursday, 21st July.

Bridlington is quite a distance from our school so in order to get a full day at the seaside we aim to leave school at 8.30am, so please arrive at school at 8am. We expect to return to school by 4pm. If there are any delays, the office team will contact you by 3.30pm. Please make sure your contact details are correct at the main office.   

The cost of the trip is £12 per child. This covers the cost of the coach and an ice cream at the seaside. Please visit the Arbor app/portal to give consent and pay.  Without your contribution it may be necessary to cancel the visit.  We understand that some families may need to pay in instalments to help spread the cost, if so, please speak to your child’s class teacher. 

What your child needs to bring 

We advise children bring a backpack containing a change of clothes, a sun hat, and a bottle of water with their name on. Children must wear sensible shoes, a raincoat and must apply sun cream (depending on the weather) before they leave home. Please ensure that all clothing is labelled with their name. All children will be provided with a packed lunch from school.  

If you have any questions, please either call the school office or speak to your child’s class teacher

Thank you for your continued support


Yours sincerely 

Year 2 team.

Coffee Mornings Every Thursday


Its the end of Summer 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y2…………………….

Year 2 have had a great start to the Summer term where they have really settled back into school, making good progress with their learning. 

The teachers are proud of every single child in year 2. They have tried their best. Well done!

Through our topic ‘Hot and Cold Deserts, we have done lots of learning across different subjects. In Geography, we have located hot and cold deserts, and identified common physical and human features.

In English, we have been using the text ‘The Tunnel’; this book is by the author, Antony Browne. We will use this text to create our own narratives.

In Phonics, we have been reviewing all our Set 3 sounds. We have been finding our sounds in words and practising reading our words quickly without sounding them out. We are now working hard to apply our phonics to spelling patterns.

In Maths, we have revised the four operations, we also covered money, time statistics and shape.

In Science, we are learning about the properties of everyday materials. We have been learning new vocabulary to describe the properties of materials, like malleable and absorbent. We conducted an experiment to see which items are absorbent. It was lots of fun!

In DT, we have been looking at ‘Moving Vehicles’. We will be designing and creating moving vehicles. 

In computing, we are learning all about internet safety. We are learning how to stay safe online and why it is important to do so.

The Year 2 team have really enjoyed teaching Year 2 this half term. It has been successful start to the summer term, and we are all impressed with the year group’s enthusiasm for learning and determination to do their best.

Well done Year 2.

The Year 2 team.
