Welcome back everyone! We hope you have had a lovely Summer. We have so many exciting learning opportunities this year in year 2.

Our class were lucky enough to have a futsal training session with some futsal specialist! We all had a great time and learnt lots of new skills.

We enjoyed learning about Harvest and collecting food for the Harvest Festival.

In our ICT lessons, we have been learning about algorithms and computer programming with Mr Goodall.

We have really been enjoying our weekly music lessons with Mr Lucas. We have been exploring rhythm and duration.

Our P.E topic this half term has been Games! We have been learning a variety of invasion games and working together as a team.

We have created a quiet reading corner in our classroom were we can go and select one of the many books from our class library and read in peace.

We have really enjoyed taking part in a maths morning! We played a lot of different maths games and took part in a variety of maths activities to help support our learning.

We were very lucky to have a ‘Classroom cookery’ session this half term. Mr Devaney helped to us to prepare a traffic light salad. The best part was when we got to eat the salad! We also learnt about kitchen hygiene and keeping healthy.

In our Art topic this half term we have been studying the artist Wassily Kandinsky. We looked at his work and produced our own interpretations of some of his art work. We also investigated colour mixing and colour studies.

We decided to link our Design Technology with our Geography topic ‘Where does our food come from?’ and make the traditional Liverpool dish ‘Scouse’ We really enjoyed peeling and chopping the vegetables but our favourite part was getting to eat the ‘Scouse’ at then end of the day.

We have been using lots of different apparatus to help support our learning in maths lessons.

In R.E. we have been looking at the importance of the Bible. Father Hughes came in to talk to us about why the Bible is so important to Christians.

Every morning in school we start our maths lessons with a ‘Super movers’ video. These are songs about lots of different number topics to help support our learning. Our favourites are ‘The Posh Pooch’ which is helping us remember the 5 times tables and the  ‘Number Bonds’ song.

A big thank you to all the adults who came in to join us in our ‘Family Event’ this term. We had lots of fun completing a variety of maths activities.

To help raise money for Children in Need we decorated cakes to sell in a cake sale.

We had a fantastic time on our school trip to Chester Zoo. We enjoyed learning about all the animals and everyone behaved really well. A big thank you to all our ‘happy helpers’ who came with us. 

Altru Drama

Altru Drama came into school for anti-bullying week. They looked at the different types of bullying and what we should do if we are being bullied or if someone we know is being bullied. We know how important it is to be kind to everyone and always show others respect.
