Success for All within a Christ Centred Community

Year Two

We really enjoyed the Santa Dash!

We used iPads and non-fiction books to research information about owls.

What amazing facts we discovered about these fantastic birds of prey!

Did you know that owls cannot move their eyes from side to side?

Instead, they have to move their whole head.

We were delighted with the visit of the animal expert who shared many interesting facts about animals. Holding the bird of prey, mammals and insects

was an unforgettable experience.

We had a special visitor. Florence Nightingale came to Year 2

all the way from Scutari and we asked her lots of questions.

Taking part in a one-minute silence on Remembrance Day was very important. We joined in a special prayer led by Father Ged to remember all those people who have lost their lives in wars.

It is Bonfire Night on Friday 5th of November. Mr Mooney is a firefighter. He came to our school and told us all the important tips on how to say safe.

In our Music lesson we were inspired by Kandinsky’s artwork to create musical sound pictures using Chrome Music Lab app. Kandinsky was an abstract artist, which means that his artwork shows ideas rather than pictures. He used lots of bright colours in his artwork and said that when he saw colour he heard music.

Mission Day

On Mission Day, we explored the meaning of the words ‘For All’. We talked about neighbours and we found out that our neighbours are not just those in Bootle,

but they all over the world.

We sang songs, created a neighbour display, wrote and shared our prayers and praised God for creating the sky for all of us.

Have you ever received a letter from a troll? We did! In Year Two we have been reading the book ‘Troll Swap’ by Leigh Hodgkinson. We have completed lots of activities and have learnt about noun phrases.

In our Maths lessons, we have been using different resources to help us recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number.

It was great fun making secondary colours using counters and paints. We looked closely at a colour wheel, observed how it worked, and using paints, coloured pencils and crayons, made secondary colours.

Recognising human and physical features during the fieldwork in our school area, was very interesting.

We used ‘Story Teller’ picture cards to help us create sentences.
