year 2 Spring 2 Week 3

Date: 15th Mar 2019 @ 6:05pm

What a brilliant week in Year 2!

In RE this week, we enjoyed learning all about the Easter Story and retelling it in a variety of ways. We discussed why Easter is the most important festival in the Christian calendar and have started to explore some religious symbols for Easter.

As part of our English, we have enjoyed writing biographies all about Emmeline Pankhurst. We used our ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ book to find out some information and used the iPads to research her in more detail. We found some really informative videos that helped us to write wonderful biographies. In Maths, we have enjoyed learning all about position and direction and this morning we consolidated our learning with a special ‘Comic Relief’ Maths. We wore our red noses and danced to the ‘Cha Cha Slide’, following the directional language. We had to keep tight hold of our Red Noses! Following this, we had fun making our noses complete quarter, half and whole turns in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions.   

To celebrate British Science Week, we enjoyed taking part in an investigation called ‘Rocket Mice’. We used old, recycled plastic bottles to launch our mice and investigated how to make the mice travel as far as possible. One mouse even ended up on top of the light! After our fun-filled investigation, we watched an animation created using plastic bottle lids that had been collected from the beach. We had to use our black and yellow thinking hats to reflect on the video and discuss the information gained from it. This led us to discussing the ugly truth behind the journey of a used plastic bottle. We explored an interactive Dive Against Debris world map and identified all the places where scuba divers have cleaned the Ocean by collecting debris. Did you know since 2018 they have collected 1,305,046 pieces of debris, with the majority of them being plastic? Reflecting on this, we created a multi-flow map outlining how the actions people make can have a huge effect on our environment. We thought about how we can be courageous advocates and look after our environment. We’ve been thinking globally, but acting locally by starting to recycle plastics and paper in our class.

A superb way to finish the week was through celebrating Comic Relief. We have loved our comic relief celebrations, even our Comic Relief Maths. Inspired by all of the celebrities who have taken part in the ‘lolathon’ we shared our own jokes. Our favourite joke was Knock knock. Who’s there? Dr. Dr Who? Following this, we danced our red noses off in our danceathon where we wore our ‘Choose Kind’ t-shirts. Thank you for the kindness and generosity you have shown donating to Comic Relief.

Spellings for next week will be a recap:

Group 1- Recap weeks 5, 6 and 7.

Group 2- fire, fired, tired, hire, hired, cow, brown, down, clown, frown.

Have a lovely weekend!

Year 2 Spring 2 Week 2

Date: 8th Mar 2019 @ 5:14pm

Another busy, but fun week in Year 2! We’ve loved celebrating World Book Day, International Women’s Day, Careers week and Fairtrade Fortnight. There is so much to share with you, where do we begin?

This week in RE, we started our new topic ‘Easter: How do symbols help us understand the story?’ We created an Easter focus table and displayed different symbols of Easter. We used a circle map to develop our thinking and define what Easter is. We enjoyed sharing stories about how we like to celebrate Easter with our friends and family. As part of Collective Worship, we have started to explore our monthly value, ‘Forgiveness’ by defining what forgiveness is. We discussed our school forgiveness poster, talked about times when we’ve had to forgive others and how it can be quite tricky to do this.  

In Maths this week, we enjoyed consolidating multiplication/division and loved playing an arithmetic game to develop our number bonds and times table recall. We are getting much quicker and have lots of fun competing with our friends.  As part of our English, we loved playing using picture reveal to learn facts about some of our teachers. We had great fun participating in a collaborative activity called ‘The Great Race’ where we had to work with our partners to record facts and create a biography.

On Thursday, we had an AMAZING day celebrating World Book Day with an array of brilliant characters. We loved using a variety of thinking maps to help develop our thinking and understanding of the characters we were dressed up like. We particularly enjoyed sharing the ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ book all about Emmeline Pankhurst. Not only was Emmeline a courageous advocate, but she was also an inspiring, influential woman who helped women to finally get the right to vote. Today, in support of International Women’s Day, we continued researching Emmeline, which will help us when we come to write a biography about her next week.

As part of Careers Week this week, we have been fortunate to have some inspiring sessions with influential people who work within our local community. Mrs Edmunds led a brilliant session reminding us how to be mindful, including mindful eating. Yum yum! Mr Davis led a wonderful session all about being in the Fire Service and we even got to try on some of his uniform! A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and helped us to develop our hopes and dreams for the future.

To conclude our celebration of Fairtrade Fortnight, Year 2 loved making fairtrade chocolate chip cookies for our Year 1 buddies. What a lovely afternoon sharing our delicious fair trade cookies with Year 1. A perfect way to end a wonderful week full of hard work, fun and celebrations.

 

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- sliding, hiking, completed, amazed, timer, ripest, shiny, smiled, plant, path.

Group 2- fire, fired, tired, hire, hired, wire, admire, firefighter, firework, vampire.  

 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Year 2 Spring 2 Week 1

Date: 1st Mar 2019 @ 6:25pm

A fantastic start to the new half term! It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces and hear the wonderful news from over the holidays. There have been so many amazing highlights this week, including welcoming Miss Dorman, a student teacher who is very excited to work with us.

As part of our multi-faith week in RE, we have enjoyed exploring Sikhism. We loved learning all about this religion and finding out about when Miss Fitzpatrick visited a Gurdwara. We used a double bubble thinking map to compare and contrast Sikhism and Christianity. Did you know both Sikhs and Christians are baptised, believe in one God and feel that everyone should be treated equally?

On Monday, we loved demonstrating our creativity by using art straws and playdoh to create 3D shapes. We then used our shapes to identify the properties of 3D shapes including faces, edges and vertices. As part of our English, we have been further developing our grammar, punctuation and spelling skills.

Yesterday, we were very fortunate to be visited by ‘Sports for Schools’ and Roy Turnham. We demonstrated our high spirits and energy when taking part in a sports circuit. We loved cheering on our friends and found it very helpful when others supported us too. After taking part in the circuit, Roy led an inspirational assembly about the greatest achievements from his career. Even though Roy has faced some challenges in his life, he didn’t let his visual impairment stop him from succeeding. We loved learning about when he played football at London 2012 Paralympics and when he won the visually impaired Ashes Cricket series against Australia in 2008. A very motivating morning that reminded us to be resilient and believe in ourselves.

As part of Fairtrade fortnight, we developed our own thinking enquiry where we explored the importance of supporting cocoa farmers. We used all of our thinking hats to develop our understanding of Fairtrade. To stimulate our thinking, we looked at an image of Jean-Baptiste, a 9 year old boy who works on a cocoa farm in Côte D'Ivoire. We then used a thinking quadrant to explore facts about his life, empathised with him and identified the advantages and disadvantages for cocoa bean farmers. We realised that there aren’t many advantages to working at a cocoa plantation and so we generated our own question: ‘Should we ever treat people unfairly?’ We discovered what would happen if traders in the cocoa supply chain became unhappy. We learnt about the important work Fairtrade does and the impact it can have in improving trade for all.

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- spied, happier, funnier, chilliest, luckiest, frying, skiing, happiest, hour, eye.

Group 2- cow, brown, clown, down, frown, how, now, power, tower, flower.

 

Have a brilliant weekend everyone!

Year 2 Spring 1 Week 6

Date: 15th Feb 2019 @ 5:40pm

 

What a brilliant way to end a superb half term!

Where to start? There are many amazing highlights from this week: creating our love pic collages, taking part in our class discussion all about who should help us learn, using number lines and playing numerous games to help us develop our number facts and mental arithmetic. We also completed our retell of ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and we are incredibly proud of the work we have produced!

In RE this week, we completed our topic all about Jesus being a great friend to everyone. We summarised many of the healing miracles he has performed and explained what this shows us about his character. Jesus has so much LOVE to give! Linking nicely to our monthly value of ‘Love’ we completed our love and friendship collages. In celebration of Climate Coalition Day on Thursday, we had a wonderful afternoon with our buddies. We enjoyed learning about different ways we can look after God’s world and how we can show love and care to it. We decided to create a heart to remind us to show love and made a pledge to be courageous and brave enough to stand up and protect God’s creation. We are definitely living out our school motto of ‘CHOOSE KIND’ and are choosing kind to our world.

To complete our theme exploring life in the 1950s, we enjoyed learning all about toys from the past. We watched videos about different toys and we had to sort the toys into a Venn Diagram. We recognised that lots of toys from the past are still around today, only they are made from different materials such as plastic. On Thursday, we were lucky enough to be visited by ‘Big Teddy Growl’ who belongs to Mrs Meredith. We showed so much love and care towards Big Teddy Growl as he is so old, delicate and very special. We identified he is a bear from the 1950s and he looks very different to SHINE. We learnt about how he was made by hand using Goat hair, metal rods for his joints and glass beads for his eyes. Then we compared Big Teddy Growl to Shine, who has plastic eyes, synthetic plush fur and stuffing inside. We even watched a video all about how toys like Shine are made at the Build a Bear shop. Things really have changed over time!

Today was a perfect way to end such a wonderful half term. We had the most amazing day at the Blue Planet Aquarium! We started our day with an ‘Under the Sea’ workshop where we learnt about rockpools and the open ocean and all the animals that like to live in these habitats. Following this, we had a tour around the aquarium and identified jellyfish, stingrays and dogfish to name a few! We loved being in the ‘Shark Tunnel’ and watching the sharks swimming above our heads. We had a wonderful time watching an ‘Aqua Show’ where we saw the divers feed the stingrays and complete a ‘scatter feed’ to so many fish. What a truly brilliant end to a fantastic half term!

Spellings for after half term are as follows:

Group 1- recap of weeks 4 and 5

towel, level, squirrel, tunnel, camel, caramel, travel, cancel, father, class, medal, hospital, national, capital, animal, fossil, April, pencil, grass, bath.

Group 2- better, letter, nicer, faster, sharper, anger, river, farmer, smoother, smaller.

 

Have a relaxing break everyone. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces after the half term!

Year 2 Spring 2 Week 5

Date: 8th Feb 2019 @ 4:22pm

A busy but exciting week in Year 2! There are many highlights that could be shared from this week ranging from our maths investigations on measuring time, capacity and weight, to our tasting sessions for Chinese New Year and how we celebrated internet safety day. A truly superb week!

As we have moved into our new monthly value of ‘Love’, we enjoyed sharing the things we love to do as well as the people who we love. We thought it would be a great idea to create a book of love. In the book of love, we have written the names of people, places and things we love. Continuing to explore the theme of love, we have started to use an App to create pictures of love. We learnt how to change the background colour, insert pictures of the friends we love and next week we will add text to describe what we love. We LOVED learning how to do this and had lots of FUN! Our RE this week also linked well with our new monthly value as we explored 4 different miracles demonstrating love. We used a ‘Tree Map’ to identify and classify the miracles Jesus performed. One of the Bible stories we focussed on was when four friends lowered their friend through the roof to see Jesus. We realised that in this story the friends and Jesus showed compassion towards the paralysed man.

On Monday, Key Stage One discovered a delicately wrapped gift tied with beautiful white and silver ribbon carefully placed near our wardrobe. There was a clue beside the gift; ‘Open up and you will see a delightful treat for you and me!’ What could it be? Who is it from? We shared some creative ideas, even predicting it could be from the White Witch because it had white and silver ribbon on. We wondered whether we should open it or if it was a trick from the evil Queen! We decided to open it and inside was a delightful treat, literally a parcel of Turkish delight! This really helped to inspire our writing and continued to bring our Narnia adventure to life.

On Tuesday we had great fun celebrating Chinese New Year! We enjoyed learning all about the story of Chinese New Year and how each year is named after the animals in the race, with this year being year of the pig. We had a great afternoon working with our buddies, developing our craft skills by creating concertina dragons. We really got our taste buds going when we tried some traditional Chinese cuisine! We continued the traditional Chinese practices by trying to use chopsticks. Although it was tricky at first, we showed great determination and perseverance, especially because using the chopsticks resulted in us eating some delicious food! We couldn’t wait to go home and open our fortune cookies. This even inspired some of us to make fortune tellers.

We have really been applying ourselves this week, particularly trying to develop our thinking. Very in keeping with the news, our BIG Question made reference to Andy Murray and encouraged us to discuss whether it is ever the right time to give up. This class discussion enabled us to use a range of thinking hats. At first, we used the black hat to explore the facts around Andy Murray, we then used our green thinking hat to empathise with him, looking at how he was feeling during the Australian Open first round. Following this, we used the grey and white thinking hats to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of giving up. Using the various thinking hats and putting our thoughts into a thinking circle really helped us understand the thought process we can have.

To complete our Science topic all about materials we conducted one last investigation that explored how materials can be changed. We enjoyed hypothesising which materials would be easy to manipulate by bending, squashing, twisting and stretching. We discovered that play dough was the easiest material to manipulate. We worked well collaboratively and independently enjoying and appreciating our learning journey.

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- medal, capital, hospital, animal, national, fossil, April, pencil, grass, bath.

Group 2- burn, turn, hurt, lurk, hurl, church, burp, nurse, purse, Thursday.

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Year 2 Spring 1 Week 4

Date: 1st Feb 2019 @ 4:34pm

A fun-filled week in Year 2! Year 2 have worked incredibly hard yet again this week and have demonstated a real love for learning! A few highlights from this week are learning about time in Maths, beginning to write a short narrative and exploring how Rosa Parks was a courageous advocate in the 1950s!

In Re this week, we enjoyed retelling the story of ‘The Ten Lepers’. We identified this story as one of the many stories where Jesus performs healing miracles. We discussed what a miracle is and explored how they make people feel. We thought about what Jesus teaches us through this story. We also discovered the importance of saying thank you and appreciating what people do for us. Our Year 1 buddies showed thanks to us when we gifted them with a friendship bracelet! In Collective Worship, to conclude our monthly value ‘Humility’, we watched a short clip of the story of Moses where God chose to speak through Moses because he was the most humble man on earth. We enjoyed taking part in a child led collective worship where we identified symbols of humility (e.g. bowing down, kneeling and joining hands) that show God we are ready to respect Him in a humble way.

This week, we have been engrossed in our story ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and every day we have been looking forward to reading more and waiting in anticipation to see what adventures await us. We have enjoyed exploring different themes in the story including love, friendship, trust, honesty, bravery and loyalty. We used a Bridge Map as a tool for thinking, identifying part of the story and relating it to our school values.

Key Stage One also had an exciting opportunity to meet the inspiring author Arlene Gormley! We discovered that Arlene is a courageous advocate, standing up for what she believes in. Not only did Arlene share her story ‘2030 Not a Fairytale’ which is a beautiful picture book that introduced us to the 17 goals for Sustainable Development, but she also shared with us her vision ‘Feeding Dreams in Cambodia’. We learnt how one brave person who has a dream can make such an impact on people’s lives! It is great to know that ALL of the money from the book sales feeds dreams in Cambodia and helps children receive an education. We really are thinking globally, helping our wider community and becoming great global neighbours. If you would like a copy of her book they can be purchased from school.

As part of our Science, we enjoyed investigating which material is the most waterproof. Earlier this week we made an animal from plasticine and predicted which material would be the most waterproof. We had to decide the best way to cover our animals and protect them from the water. We had to conduct a fair test and we had great fun during our investigation. We think there may have been more water on us than the animals!

This week we have well and truly lived out our school values. We have really enjoyed our learning and have been truly thankful for the opportunities we have been given. We can’t wait for another exciting week ahead!

Spellings next week will be as follows:

Group 1- towel, level, squirrel, tunnel, camel, caramel, travel, cancel, father, class.

Group 2- whirl, twirl, girl, dirt, first, shirt, swirl, bird, third, firm.

Have a relaxing weekend everyone!

Year 2 Spring 1 Week 3

Date: 25th Jan 2019 @ 5:01pm

Another superb week in Year 2! 


In Re this week, we continued to explore how Jesus is a good friend to everyone. We looked at different Bible stories including ‘The Ten Lepers’ and ‘Blind Bartimaeus’ and thought about how the teachings of Jesus help us in our lives today. We decided to create a recipe for a good friend and link it to our school value of Nurture. We had many wonderful ideas and there are lots of great qualities we all have that make us a good friend. We have made a promise to live like Jesus and be a good friend to our Year 1 buddies. This afternoon we decided to make a friendship bracelet! We showed great humility with our arts and crafts talents and we can’t wait to finish making our bracelets next week.

As part of our English this week, we received another parcel in our special wardrobe, it contained a book ‘The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe by CS Lewis’. We have read the first few pages and it is incredibly exciting! We have loved reading the story and exploring the characters in detail. This week we have used our empathy thinking hat to describe how Lucy and Mr Tumnus felt when they met one another. We used our Double Bubble thinking map to compare and contrast these two characters. We then used this thinking map as a tool to help us write wonderful character descriptions! 

In Maths this week, we have been exploring money. We have enjoyed combining different amounts of money to find a total and we also explored giving change. We talked about how we could extend our learning further and we can’t wait to count how much money we have in our piggy banks or calculate how much change we will get when we go to the shops. What a great way to extend our learning and have fun! 

As part of our new theme topic ‘What was life like in the 1950’s?’ we enjoyed sorting house hold items into past and present. First we had to try and guess what the items were and how they were used. Some of the items were tricky to identify, especially because they have changed so much over time! With great determination and perseverance we managed to successfully and correctly identify the items and match them to the correct decade. 

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- recap of week 1, 2 and 3.

Group 2- tune, home, make, rule, cake, cone, gate, spade, phone, ruler.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Year 2 Spring 1 Week 2

Date: 18th Jan 2019 @ 5:04pm

A brilliant week in Year 2!

In RE this week, we listened to more Bible stories about Jesus and his friends. We used a Bubble Map to describe what a good friend is and liked linking this to our school values. We are really enjoying this topic and are excited to continue it next week. Following on from our whole school collective worship on Wednesday with Mark, we continued to discuss our monthly value of humility. We talked about all of the talents we have and loved showcasing and sharing our talents with one another whilst staying humble about them.

In Maths this week, we have continued to consolidate our knowledge of fractions including half, one quarter, two quarters, three quarters and thirds. We have been learning how to calculate fractions of numbers and applying our skills to reasoning problems. We have shown great perseverance with this tricky concept and we will keep practising this.

What an exciting week in Key Stage 1, a magical wardrobe has appeared and we are awaiting an enchanting adventure. What is it for? What is inside? Where will it take us? All we know is there was a postcard with a DVD attached. Excitedly, we watched the DVD and discovered a captivating world called Narnia. We have demonstrated our creativity by using some fantastic noun phrases to describe the scene on the DVD. There is a real excitement in Year 2 and we have LOVED the start of our adventure. We can’t wait to see what magic the wardrobe brings…was the snow today magic from Narnia?

As part of our Science topic about materials, we have planned an investigation which we will conduct next lesson. We have decided to investigate which material is the most waterproof. We talked about the importance of changing one thing and keeping everything else the same to make sure our investigation will be fair.

Following on from ‘Our Brilliant Brains’ topic last week, we had the opportunity to meet Chris, Mrs Warwick’s brother. He told us about his rare neurological condition that affects his cerebellum. Chris explained how our brains work differently and sometimes some people’s brains have to work much harder than other people’s to help them. We also watched the inspiring clip with 'Joey the legend', a ten year old boy whose brain also works very hard to help him. We celebrated our differences and realised the amazing work staff at hospitals including Alder Hey do for so many people. It is important that we raise the awareness of all the wonderful things people do and how hard our brains can work. After listening to these inspirational people we have taken away a very important message which is to always try our best and have a positive mind-set. 

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- wriggle, nettle, sizzle, beetle, table, steeple, crumple, candle, beautiful, fast.

Group 2- tune, tuned, mute, flute, huge, dune, mule, duke, rule, ruler.

 

Have a relaxing weekend!

Year 2 Spring 1 Week 1

Date: 11th Jan 2019 @ 5:58pm

Happy New Year and a very warm welcome to the new term!

We have made an excellent start to the term; have been wonderful role models, have given our best and worked very hard. There has been so much great learning taking place including learning about fractions in Maths, suffixes in grammar and we’ve even developed our football skills in PE.  What a lovely way to start the new year and the new term!

In RE, we started our new topic that explores how Jesus is a friend to everyone. We loved sharing numerous Bible stories about Jesus and his friends, then we used a Circle Map to identify his friends. This led us to ask the question ‘What makes a good friend?’ We had a very thoughtful discussion about friendships and described the qualities that help us to be a good friend. We used a Bubble Map to visualise our thinking. This week we have demonstrated how we are great friends to one another just like Jesus.

Our whole school theme this week has been exploring our brilliant brains! We started our week by learning about the parts of the brain. Our challenge on Monday was to create a model of the brain using Play-Doh. We had to work collaboratively each making a part of the brain and explaining its function, we had so much fun and loved learning about the Brain. The fun didn’t stop there as we took our learning outside to learn about Neurons. We discovered that Neurons send messages to other cells in your body and make a Neuron Chain. Each day we have loved playing ‘Neuron Chain Tag’ to demonstrate how our brilliant brains work. Today, we discovered our brain grows very fast during the first ten years of our lives and we can make our brain more and more powerful. The more things we learn, the more connections we make, with more connections, the neurons can send and receive more messages. We compared our brains to an elastic band as the more connections we make in our brain the more it can hold. We can sculpt our brains and make them more powerful by adding new information, ideas and memories. We have created many memories this week, developed our thinking and truly loved learning about learning!

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- spy, spies, try, tries, parties, fry, fries, why, steak, pretty.

Group 2- home, phone, zone, bone, cone, drone, joke, lobe, mode, poke.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 8

Date: 19th Dec 2018 @ 1:35pm

What a superb way to end our first term in Year 2!

This week has been filled with festive fun! To start our week, we enjoyed learning about the significance of the evergreen fir tree as a symbol of Hope. We explored what evergreen means and identified the tree remains green all year round, representing the everlasting hope of mankind. We discussed how all the needles point upwards, towards heaven, making it a symbol of thoughts turning towards heaven. In preparation for Christmas, we decided that we would each create our own tree of hope.

This week, we commenced our DT project by planning how to make a decoration for our Christmas tree. We decided to create our very own penguin! We planned what tools and materials we would need and thought about how we could make our decoration. We practised threading needles and explored two different types of stitches, the running stitch and overstitch. We followed our plan carefully by cutting out our templates and stitching them together. Then we stuffed our penguins, which brought our decorations to life! We hope you enjoy hanging them on your tree as much as we enjoyed making them. 

Yesterday, we received some wonderful news from our Young Writers Poetry Patrol competition! We received a letter addressed to Key Stage 1, explaining that there had been over 13,000 entries to the competition and the standard was incredibly high. Despite this, all 60 of our poems have been chosen for publication. What a wonderful achievement, we are incredibly proud of you all! Letters from Young Writers have been sent home, if you would like your child’s work to be published in the Young Writers Anthology, please follow the instructions enclosed in the letter and provide permission online to Young Writers by 4th January 2019. What a wonderful Christmas gift from Year 1 and Year 2!

Today, we enjoyed attending our Church service, led by the wonderful Year 4. What a lovely service, well done Year 4! We certainly spread some Christmas cheer with our beautiful singing. We continued our festive celebrations in class by playing party games, including pass the parcel. What a brilliant way to end an incredible, fun-filled term in Year 2!

All the staff in Year 2 would like to say a huge thank you for the kindness and generosity you have all shown to us. We truly appreciate all of your kind words and gifts. We are blessed to spend our time helping your wonderful children and we have had a truly amazing term together. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope your holiday break is filled with fun, laughter and plenty of rest!

Enjoy the Christmas holidays. We look forward to seeing you in 2019!

Miss Fitzpatrick, Mrs Grayson, Miss Leyland and Mrs Warwick.

 

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 7

Date: 14th Dec 2018 @ 5:38pm

Wow! Year 2 are truly amazing and have been shining like stars!

What a delight watching the talented children perform ‘The Sleepy Shepherd’. It was wonderful watching the children acting and narrating with such confidence and listening to them singing their hearts out. Year 2 really filled out hearts with joy and spread Christmas cheer to all! We are all incredibly proud of you!  

In RE this week, we explored Christmas around the world. We chose Ukraine as our focus country and enjoyed learning all about Ukrainian Christmas traditions for example, they have 12 meals to represent the 12 disciples and start eating when they see the first star in the night sky. We loved learning about the ‘Christmas Spider’, a wonderful story all about how the special Christmas spider decorated the trees with cobwebs and how overnight the cobwebs magically turn into silver and gold strands. We had great fun making our own ‘pavuchky’ (little spider) decorations with our Year 1 buddies. Remember finding a spider on your tree is meant to be good luck!

As part of our Collective Worship this week, we thought about our hopes and dreams for the future. We shared our hopes for the future with our friends and discussed what steps we can to take so that our hopes and dreams become a reality.

This week, we have been very busy but have thoroughly enjoyed writing our diary entries from Dr Freeze on his Superhero mission at Trinity St. Peter’s. We also loved collecting data about our favourite Christmas songs and constructing our own tally charts. In Theme, we have been exploring different significant people from our local area. We enjoyed learning about the important role these people had and why they are so significant. Our challenge was to create a timeline to develop our understanding of chronological order. It was quite tricky at first, but we showed great determination and resilience and produced some wonderful timelines.

Today, we enjoyed working with our buddies and celebrating Christmas Jumper day to raise money for Save the Children. Thank you for your kind donations! What a wonderful way to end our final full week before Christmas.

Spellings for January are as follows:

Group 1- donkeys, worth, towards, hall, watch, come, wrote, fudge, design, decide.

Group 2- cake, make, bake, fake, flake, spade, fade, gale, mate, gate.

 

Have a relaxing weekend everyone. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 6

Date: 7th Dec 2018 @ 5:00pm

What another great week!

In RE this week, as part of our topic ‘Why was the birth of Jesus such good news?’, we have been thinking about the difference this good news made to the world and how the good news spread further. We talked about the important role that Angel Gabriel played in spreading this news. This linked nicely with our new Collective Worship monthly value ‘Hope’, as we discussed the hope Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds and the Kings had in God.

This week, we found another clue from the Superhero struggle; Dr Freeze left his diary entries informing us of all the missions he has been on recently! When we pieced the diary entries together, we realised there was one missing and it was from his mission to Trinity St. Peter’s. This week as part of our English, we identified features of diary entries. Following this, we used the ‘flow map’ to represent our thinking and to sequence our ideas about what could have happened to Dr Freeze and Captain Crush during this exciting mission!

As part of our Maths lessons, we have continued to explore statistics by further consolidating pictograms, as well as looking at tally charts and block diagrams. We now understand different ways of presenting and interpreting information. Although at first it was a little tricky, we have shown great determination and perseverance to continue interpreting the information presented to us in a variety of ways.

In Science, we have been exploring different materials and used the tree map to classify these materials. We can’t wait to complete our material investigation next lesson! This week, we have had a new addition to the class, our Year 2 elf! On Monday, we found a letter saying he had been busy over the weekend putting up a Christmas tree and decorating our classroom. He asked us to continue decorating the tree and we had great fun doing this. Each day we are excited to find out what he has been getting up to overnight!

Spellings next week will be a recap of weeks 5 and 6. These spellings can be found in spelling books.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 5

Date: 30th Nov 2018 @ 11:44am

A very exciting week in Year 2!

In RE this week, we have enjoyed roleplaying the story when Angel Gabriel visited Mary to share the good news that she was going to have baby Jesus. We used the ‘double bubble’ thinking map to describe how Mary and Angel Gabriel would have felt when they shared the good news. To complete our monthly value of ‘Peace’, we enjoyed taking part in a child led collective worship where we shared our favourite Bible story about Peace, created our own doves and said a prayer for peace.


In Maths, we have looked at a variety of pictograms and identified that it is important to use the key on the pictogram so we know the value of each picture. We have been able to read and interpret information on pictograms and answer questions about them. We are also continuing to practise counting backwards in twos and fives.

On Thursday, we discovered there had been a superhero struggle in Year 1 and Year 2! We looked carefully at the scene and realised there were lots of clues such as super hero logos, ice and footprints, which revealed what had happened. We spotted there was a letter for us to read but we couldn’t reach it because the scene had been roped off! We had to use our thinking hats to solve how we would reach the letter without entering the scene so we could discover what happened. We used the ‘circle map’ to generate ideas about what had happened and we used the frame of reference to evidence our thinking. We figured out that the Superhero struggle was in fact Doctor Freeze! We discovered he had been on a Superhero mission to protect everyone in Formby.

As part of our Theme, we have been developing our Art skills and explored colour mixing. We set up our own work station where we used powder paint to mix colours. We loved watching the colours change and we enjoyed using the paint to create different effects. Each lesson we will build on our skills until we have created our final piece that we will proudly display.

Today we noticed a secret little door has appeared in our class. We are wondering what or who it could belong to…We can’t wait to see what happens next week!

Spellings this week will be a recap of week 3 and week 4. These spellings can be found in spelling books.

Have a lovely weekend!

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 4

Date: 23rd Nov 2018 @ 5:06pm

Another great week in Year 2!

This week in RE, we looked at the story of Zechariah and the good news he shared with Elizabeth. We talked about different ways to share good news including how we can use modern technology. We decided to write Elizabeth an email to tell her the good news. In Collective Worship, continuing with our monthly value ‘Peace’ we enjoyed listening to songs about peace including ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Imagine’. We discussed the lyrics used and how they encourage peace through the medium of music. 

In Maths, we have been consolidating counting backwards in twos and fives. It is much trickier counting backwards so we have practised this each day by completing a variety of counting challenges including counting tennis, rally robin and round robin. Another highlight in maths this week has been playing Kahoot! We loved practising our number bonds and playing against one another. We’ve had great fun! In English, we have been focusing on different spelling rules including adding -ed to change a regular verb into the past. As part of promoting our love of reading, we have taken the opportunity to visit our book fair and have chosen some wonderful books for us to read for pleasure. 

This week, we have really been exploring different ways to develop our thinking. As a class we have explored the term metacognition and what it means to think about thinking. We started to develop our thinking by playing warm up activities. For one of these activities, we had a coloured sticker on our head. We could not see our sticker but we had to sort ourselves into groups without talking. At first we found this tricky, but persevering and thinking creatively we found many different ways to solve this problem, including using our learning environment to help. During our class discussions, we have been using our thinking hats to explain our thoughts. When playing the game ‘Would you rather?’ We used our white thinking hat to think of the positive and our grey thinking hat to think of any negative things. This really helped us to understand our thinking. We have demonstrated great thinking skills particularly during our discussion, ‘Have we become a throwaway society?’ Please check our Twitter page @Year2TSP to see our class discussion each week! 

Spellings this week will be a recap over the first two weeks of Autumn term. These spellings can be found in spelling books.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 3

Date: 16th Nov 2018 @ 4:31pm

Wow! What a truly amazing week in Year 2. 

In Collective Worship, we continued our monthly value of ‘Peace’ by looking at different photographs taken from around the world. We discussed if the pictures reflected peace to us and also enjoyed listening to some peaceful music. We identified the dove as a symbol of peace and decorated our own dove with different symbols of peace. This week in Maths, we have continued to explore division and multiplication problems. As part of our English, we have been consolidating our knowledge of recounts and we have recapped our spellings over the past few weeks.

This week, Year 2 have certainly reflected our school motto ‘Choose Kind’. We had the wonderful opportunity to start our Celebration of Kindness week with our TSP Bake Off! What a tremendous effort made by all. We were very excited to display our cakes in class and present them to the TSP judges. The judges definitely had the best job; the cakes looked fantastic, smelt delightful and tasted delicious! Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood would be proud. We couldn’t resist tasting the cakes for ourselves. After all, we did work hard baking them, it was only fair! The standard was very high and because of our fantastic baking effort and your wonderful generosity we managed to raise a huge amount of money, thank you.  

On Tuesday, the whole school took part in TSP’s Got Voice. We divided into our House Teams and that morning we were given a song to learn and perform that very afternoon. It was tricky, but like true professionals we showed great determination and certainly laughed more and worried less! We had great fun working with our friends across the whole school. In such a short space of time we made a wonderful effort and literally enjoyed every step of our journey, creating show stopping performances.

As part of Anti-Bullying week, we watched a short film by Pixar, ‘For The Birds’. Lots of us talked about how the small birds were mean, or even bullying, the large bird because he was different to them. We noticed that by the end of the video it was actually the small birds who ended up looking silly and embarrassed as a result of their actions. This led us to explore the question, ‘What is bullying?’ We then went on to think about the difference between being mean and bullying. We asked the question, ‘Is it better to follow the crowd or stand out from the crowd?’ We decided that it is good to be different and stand out from the crowd. If we were all the same the world would be such a boring place. We reflected on the actions of the birds and reminded ourselves that it is important that we stand up for what we believe in and choose kind to ourselves and others.

Today we have enjoyed spending time with our Year 1 buddies, celebrating Choose Kind and Children in Need. We loved working with our buddies to create our very own Pudsey Crispie Cakes! This afternoon we finished our Celebration of Kindness Week by performing ‘Wonder’ by Emeli Sande as a whole school. During our assembly it was revealed that this week we have raised a grand total of £936.05. A huge thank you to you all for your kindness and generosity! We hope you have enjoyed taking part in our celebrations as much as we have! This week we have truly lived out our school mottos: ‘Choose Kind’ and ‘Laugh more, worry less’.

Well done Year 2! We are incredibly proud of you all! This week you have shown us that you well and truly shine like the stars in the universe!

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- copying, copied, crying, cried, replying, replied, drying, dried, kind, hold.

Group 2- fair, chair, flair, hair, lair, pair, stair, stairs, chairs, hairy.

 

Have a well-deserved rest and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 2

Date: 9th Nov 2018 @ 4:08pm

Another brilliant week in Year 2!

What a great start to the week taking part in our exciting ‘Read for Good’ Readathon. The countdown was on for our DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) sessions. We really enjoyed reading a range of stories and discussing different authors. One of the authors we focused on was Julia Donaldson, we even took part in a Julia Donaldson Relay Readathon. Mrs Grayson kick started our reading relay, followed by Miss Leyland, Mrs Warwick, Miss Fitzpatrick and then Year 2! In this Relay Readathon, we managed to read 17 Julia Donaldson books from our class library. Thank you for your support and sponsorship, we have really lived out our school values ‘Nurture’ and ‘Enjoy’. The children in hospitals across the UK will be delighted with their new books and will be able to enjoy reading for pleasure just like us!

In Collective Worship, we continued exploring our monthly value ‘Peace’ by looking at different photographs from around the world that symbolise peace. Today, we also discussed 100 Days of Peace and Hope in recognition of Remembrance Day this Sunday. We used Remembrance Day as part of our class discussion and we explored the question, ‘Can remembering the past help us make a better future?’ We talked about why people choose to wear poppies. We identified that this year is special because we are marking 100 years since the end of the First World War. In recognition of Remembrance 100 we made our own poppies and held a peace party.

We have been wonderful mathematicians this week, working really hard to further develop our understanding of how we can use arrays to multiply. We have also been dividing numbers equally and have completed some tricky reasoning and problem solving challenges! In English this week, we have written a recount of our journey to school and as part of our Theme we enjoyed mapping our journey to school.

This afternoon the whole school gathered in the hall to watch TSP’s Celebration of Kindness Week video for this year. This video is linked to our school motto ‘Choose Kind’ and reminds us to choose to be kind to ourselves as well as laugh more and worry less. We are very excited for our Kindness Week next week and we hope you enjoy watching the video as much as we enjoyed making it. On Monday Year 2 and 3 will kick start our Celebration of Kindness Week with our bake off. Ready, steady, bake…

 

Spellings this week are as follows:

Group 1- cry, fly, dry, reply, flies, dries, copies, babies, break, poor.

Group 2- far, car, star, start, smart, bark, dark, park, parked, yard.

Year 2 Autumn 2 Week 1

Date: 2nd Nov 2018 @ 4:19pm

What a fantastic start to the new half-term!

This week, we thought about how we can make sure each day in school is brilliant. We created a thinking map to show what causes us to have a great day and the effect a good day can have on us. We really developed our thinking and have tried our best to ensure that each day we take all the steps we can, so that we enjoy our learning and shine. We are really beginning to show our thinking process, we are becoming more critical and we are taking ownership of our own learning. What a superb way to start the new half-term!

In RE, we began our new topic ‘Why is the birth of Jesus such good news?’ by sharing our good news from the holidays. We discussed different ways we can share our good news, for example, through word of mouth, letters and news reports. We decided to create a news board in our class so that we can share our achievements with one another. Following this, we talked about how news was shared in the past and identified that God used angels to spread his good news. We looked at different images of angels including renaissance paintings, modern artwork and even Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North! We are looking forward to creating our own angels next week. In our Collective Worship this week, the new month signalled the start of our new monthly value ‘Peace’. We enjoyed reading ‘Five Minutes’ Peace’ and then we discussed what it means to us, sharing different ways we can find peace.

In Year 2, we love to read! To inspire our reading even more, we have displayed a list of 100 books to read by the end of Key Stage 1. Each time we read one of the recommended books the book cover goes on our display! We are very lucky because we have many of these books in our school and we know we have lots at home too. We can’t wait to read even more of these books, this has definitely motivated us for our ‘Readathon’ next week- please find the list of 100 books to read during KS1 on the children’s section of the school website. In English, we have been learning to write a recount. First, we had to complete a problem solving activity where we had to successfully order a recount and then we identified what makes a good recount. We enjoyed writing a plan that recounted our favourite day from the half-term holidays.

Other great highlights this week have included creating amazing arrays to help us understand multiplication. We have also explored significant places in our local area and loved sharing what is special about Formby. As part of our computing curriculum, we explored our digital lives where we discussed how to stay safe online. What a superb week!

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1- cereal, ice, race, circus, cinema, city, bicycle, fancy, behind, floor.

Group 2- low, snow, flow, blow, show, mow, know, row, grow, glow.

Have a great weekend everyone- you have definitely earned the rest!

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 7

Date: 19th Oct 2018 @ 6:00pm

Wow! What an amazing half term Year 2 have had.

This week we have well and truly lived out our monthly value of ‘Generosity’ with our kind donations in support of ‘World Food Day’, donating to Uganda and making Christmas Shoeboxes. We really have been serving with a kind heart and have shown generosity to those less fortunate.

We’ve had a busy but fun week. On Monday we received a top secret letter from Agent 2031 inviting us on a special mission to investigate our local heroes. This mission is of great importance and we have already shown brilliant investigation skills and thought of some great questions to ask our heroes during our special mission. We have also shown great thinking skills when we discussed whether all heroes have superpowers. We decided that heroes don’t have to have superpowers, but they do have many special skills.

In celebration of ‘World Food Day’ we enjoyed taking part in our ‘Zero Hunger Run’ where we demonstrated great perseverance and determination. Following our run, we created some wonderful posters to encourage zero hunger by 2030. On Wednesday, we enjoyed going to the St Peter's Parish Hall to make our shoeboxes. We had lots of fun and enjoyed chatting to the wonderful volunteers. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, we can’t wait for all of the boys and girls to receive our Christmas boxes!

Today we enjoyed completing a Science investigation to end our 'keeping ourselves healthy' topic. We explored how quickly germs can spread and how important it is that we wash our hands regularly so that we can stay fit and healthy. Other highlights this week have included celebrating our differences through reading stories such as Elmer, Our World Your World and Horace and Morris but mostly Dolores. Today we were set a challenge and had to draw a firefighter, police officer and mechanic. When we looked at our pictures we realised that there was something similar, most of us had drawn boys. We identified that girls and boys can do any job and that police officers or firefighters can be girls or boys. We changed our ideas on jobs that boys and girls can do and loved linking this to the story ‘Horace and Morris but mostly Dolores’.

Spellings for after half term are as follows:

Group 1- badge, sledge, village, cage, gem, energy, jam, jacket, even, only

Group 2- high, fright, might, night, light, sigh, flight, higher, bright, brighter

 

Well done Year 2, you have made an incredible start to the year and we are all proud of you! Have a well-deserved break this half term and we look forward to seeing you after the half term holiday.

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 6

Date: 12th Oct 2018 @ 5:50pm

Another great week in Year 2!

This week in Collective Worship we talked about our monthly value of 'Generosity' and how we are generous in different ways. We enjoyed reading the story 'The Rainbow Fish' and like the fish, we add colour to people's lives in many different ways. In RE, we looked at the importance of the Bible and enjoyed a story about Mary Jones, who walked twenty five miles to own a Bible. We talked about the lengths Mary went to in order to retrieve this special book and we also explored why this book is so special to many people. 

In English, we have been exploring different types of sentences including questions. We enjoyed asking one another different questions and playing different games. In Maths, we have been using different resources to support us with addition. We particularly enjoyed using Cuisenaire to help us investigate number bonds to 100. We have also been adding two digit and one digit numbers as well as two digit and two digit numbers. Today in order to consolidate this, we completed a Maths investigation. We worked well in our teams and showed great perseverance! 

As part of our Science topic 'How do I stay healthy?' we decided that exercise is important in keeping us healthy. During our PE lessons, we created an exercise regime with our friends. We thought of four different exercises we can do to show the whole class. We then used self-evaluation and peer-evaluation to reflect on our exercise cycles and make them even better. We could definitely lead our own exercise classes and loved taking part in each other's exercise regimes. It was hard work, but we enjoyed keeping active and exercising with one another!

Other great highlights from this week are creating beautiful observational drawings of Autumn scenes. We then used water colours in our drawings too. In celebration of World Mental Health Day on the 10th October, we asked 'What is happiness?' We loved sharing what makes us happy and we decided to make lovely bunting with special quotes on that will inspire us to be happy and appreciate the small things in life. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone! 

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 5

Date: 5th Oct 2018 @ 5:15pm

Wow! Another excellent week in Year 2!

This week in RE, we have enjoyed learning about different stories from the Old Testament and the New Testament. It was great sharing these stories with our friends. Following this, we demonstrated our creativity by designing our own front cover for the Bible that represents different stories from the Old or New Testament. We look forward to learning more about why the Bible is so special to Christians.

On Wednesday it was ‘Year 2 Learn to Cycle’ day and we all loved developing our cycling skills. We couldn’t wait to share our achievements and enjoyed watching videos of us cycling on our playground. We had so much fun and really did enjoy our learning with happy feet.

We also celebrated National Poetry Day on Thursday by writing poems all about Autumn. To inspire our curious minds, we went on an Autumn walk in our school grounds. We took photographs on our iPads of different signs of Autumn, we then used this to help create a senses poem. We had brilliant ideas such as ‘Autumn looks like orange leaves falling from the trees’, we are very creative in Year 2.

We had great fun measuring various objects around our classroom using different equipment. Then we compared the length of different items and placed them in order from shortest to tallest. We have really been shining this week and enjoying all of our wonderful learning opportunities.

Thank you for all of your hard work! I am proud of you all, you really do shine like stars in the universe.

Have a well-deserved rest this weekend!

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 4

Date: 28th Sep 2018 @ 4:52pm

Year 2 have had another busy but exciting week!

In RE we have enjoyed reading different Bible stories and sharing why these stories are important. We said that the story of ‘Jesus Goes Fishing’ is important because it teaches us to be patient and 'Noah’s Ark' reminds us to trust in God and follow his path. Today we enjoyed the Harvest Service led by Year 3. A huge well done to all of our children and thank you for all of your kind donations, they will really help our local community.

This week we were excited to show our British Values as it was time to vote for our Pupil Voice Committees. Many children volunteered to join these committees and we delivered speeches in front of the class about why we would be a great ambassador for these committees. We enjoyed voting in our very own Polling Station. Well done, we all showed great enthusiasm, courage and respect for one another.

Today we had a great time raising money for Macmillan Coffee Morning. Thank you for donating these wonderful treats. We thoroughly enjoyed eating the cakes and raising money for such a worthy charity!

Other highlights from this busy week include celebrating European Day of Languages, we have even continued counting in different languages each day this week. We also explored different types of poems, identified the features and we are looking forward to writing our own poems next week. In Maths we have been partitioning numbers in different ways and finding different coin combinations to equal the same monetary amount. We can recognise coins and count the money in our piggy banks! We have also explored ways of keeping ourselves healthy and have been practising different mindfulness activities each day to help us keep our minds happy and free from any worries. We really have been working hard.

Well done Year 2. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!  

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 3

Date: 21st Sep 2018 @ 4:27pm

Year 2 have been incredibly busy and worked very hard again this week!

This week we have celebrated our love for reading each day and enjoyed exploring different places around school where we can read. We said it does not matter where we read as reading takes us on our own journey. We chose our favourite books to read and shared why these books are special to us. We identified that the Bible is a special book to us. We decided to read lots of Bible stories and in RE we enjoyed roleplaying these different stories. We had so much fun and love reading and bringing stories to life!

Continuing our topic ‘We’re All Wonders!’ we have enjoyed celebrating how special we are; both on the inside and the outside. We produced some beautiful pieces of descriptive writing as well as some fantastic drawings. In Art, we looked at Joan Miró, a Spanish painter and sculptor who is well known for his surrealist paintings. We found out that Joan started painting when he was 7 years old and that he loved painting using different lines and shapes. He loved using colours and said that colours are like words in poems and notes in music. We also discovered that he had lots of stars painted on the ceiling in his bedroom. We loved using bright oil pastels to create our own self portrait in the style of Joan Miro!

We had great fun celebrating ‘Jeans for Genes Day’. We enjoyed taking part in a Collective Worship celebrating how wonderful we all our and we had a great afternoon competing in a 3 legged denim race. We talked about the importance of choosing kind and celebrating such worthy charities.

Have a relaxing weekend everyone!

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 2

Date: 14th Sep 2018 @ 4:46pm

Wow! What an amazing week in Year 2!

This week we have continued exploring our topic 'We're All Wonders' and enjoyed demonstrating our school motto ‘Choose Kind’ in a variety of ways. In Collective Worship we explored our monthly values of 'respect and dignity'. We talked about what these words mean, why they are so important and even suggested how we can show these values. We said it is important that we show respect which links to our school ‘High Five’. We decided to lead a Collective Worship by giving a high five to one another. We made our own high five in which we wrote a promise to choose kind. We then made the sign of peace with one another, showing dignity and respect.

We also decided to be kind to our bodies this week and take part in ‘Live Schools Fitness Week’ with The Body Coach. It was hard work, but it was great fun and we couldn’t stop smiling! Throughout the week we have also celebrated random acts of kindness and we have been appreciating all the kind things we do for one another like holding the door open, sharing our things and helping our friends if they get hurt; that is just naming a few!

We really are choosing kind in Year 2 and shining like stars.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Year 2 Autumn 1 Week 1

Date: 7th Sep 2018 @ 5:15pm

It has been a pleasure to welcome Year 2 back to school this week and we’ve had a brilliant start to the new term. Our collective worship this week looked at new beginnings and new adventures. We enjoyed sharing stories about new adventures and we are very excited to share our learning journey together.         

We started our journey with a whole school assembly where each class welcomed a new bear. We suggested lots of names for our bear and as a class we decided to call our new friend Shine. Shine brought a special book called ‘We’re all wonders’ by R.J Palacio. The book is about a little boy called Auggie who knows he doesn’t look ordinary and although he does ordinary things, he still feels like he doesn’t fit in. Auggie realises that we are all different and we are all unique but if we choose to look with kindness then we will always find wonder. This mirrors our school motto of ‘CHOOSE KIND’.   

Year 2 have enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities which have helped us to see that we are all wonders from sharing what makes us unique, to drawing ourselves as wonders and even seeing ourselves as superheroes!  Wow, what a great week!

Please find below spellings for this week. We use the flip-learning approach to spellings which means that the children have the choice to begin learning these spellings over the weekend. On Monday we will have our weekly spelling session to learn these spellings in preparation for a quiz on Thursday. This will happen every week. Please note reading books will be sent home next week.

Spellings: wood, afraid, coin, week, bright, coach, group, search, before, scared.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Welcome to Year 2
