We will begin the summer term with the topic 'Amazing Africa’. This will begin our next locality study. Through maps, pictures, video clips, non-fiction and fiction texts we will investigate this contrasting locality. Life in Appleton and life for people living in Africa will be compared. We will also carry out research using different sources to seek answers to our questions.  

During English lessons we will focus on our new text ‘Lila and the Secret of the Rain’ which is set in Africa and links beautifully with our topic. We will also read and use information texts to build our comprehension skills.  

We will investigate seeds and plant some, to carry out observations and investigations. In addition, we will be growing and observing the growth of plants and finding out and describing how plants need water, light, and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy in our environment. 

The children will deepen their science learning around identifying and naming a variety of plants and animals in their habitats. We will look at microhabitats including ponds and reinforce our understanding of simple food chains with a visit to Grappenhall Heyes Gardens. In art we are looking at African jewellery and using sculpture to develop and share ideas, experiences, and imagination.  We will be looking at pattern, shape and form when creating our own jewellery.


After half term our topic is ‘By the Seaside’. In English the children will look at poetry including ‘The Owl and the Pussy Cat’ by Edward Lear. We will also read stories with sea themes. 

The History focus will be learning about seaside places in the past and how they have changed over time. We are having a visit from Warrington Museum who will bring a vast selection of artefacts and exhibits for the children to explore and experience.  

In Design Technology we will generate, develop, model and communicate ideas through talking, drawing and mock-ups.. The children will select from and use construction materials. We hope to explore mechanisms (wheels and axles) and create a bathing machine that the Victorians may have used. 

As our Leavers' Concert gets closer Year 2 will be practising songs and preparing to share their experiences of their past year at Cobbs with friends and family.
