Year Two

We are so excited to welcome all of you to Year 2! Ms Cairns and Ms McGann have been working hard to make sure that your return to school will be a very positive experience! 

Danielle McGann 

Goldfinches Class

In Year 2 we will become scientists, researchers, artists and much more as we discover many new topics together. This is my first year teaching at CAW, so I’m sure we will all have first day nerves but don’t worry I know Year 2 will be full of fun and laughter (and excellent learning)! You may notice my accent is a little different from yours and that’s because I’m from Ireland. I come from Galway, a seaside town just like Brighton. It may be no surprise then that I love spending my time at the beach, swimming or simply watching the waves. I also love anything to do with art, especially drawing, painting or taking photographs from my adventures around Sussex. I can’t wait for us to create some beautiful pieces of art together! 

Tegan Cairns

Greenfinches Class

This will be my first year teaching at CAW, so Year 2 is new to me too. Ms McGann and I have lots of fun things planned- you will be creating some amazing work but laughing lots! I can’t wait for us to discover new topics and learn together! I am from a place called Bath and which is a lot like Brighton. Some of my favourite things in the world are swimming and running. I like spending my time at the beach, swimming in the sea or running along the seafront.
