Year 2 took the lead in our school's harvest assembly. We reminded everyone why we celebrate the harvest and explained that the generous donations of food would be going to St. George's Crypt.
We enjoyed participating in a dance workshop. We learnt zumba and cheerleading dance moves and performed these to music.
Savoury Food Fortnight
We learnt how to prepare food safely. We also developed our cutting, spreading and snipping skills. We tasted and described ingredients before we designed and made our own sandwich. What a delicious time we had!
World Book Day
We dressed up as our favourite book characters. We paraded our costumes in assembly and the PTA came in to our class to read their favourite book.
In Year 2 we believe that developing independence and forming secure relationships are essential in order for the children to travel on their learning journey.
We love to celebrate our faith in God and try to make positive choices in everything we do.
We enjoy new challenges every day and we always try our best no matter how tricky something may be.
We are all special in Year 2!
During Art week we experimented with warm and cool colours to produce our own art work based on the artist Hunderwasser.
St Francis Day
In October we celebrated St Francis day. We spent our day learning about St Francis. We had an amazing day and we were visited by the Dog's Trust.
We celebrated Christmas by performing our nativity to our family and friends. Our production was called Superstar and we shone brightly!
We were visited by D:Side who spoke to us about how we are different to our friends, how our body works and being special! We also discussed how to keep safe when using the internet.
Victorian School Day Trip to Armley Mills
During the Autumn term Year 2 were studying the Victorians. To fully understand how the Victorians lived and worked we decided to dress up for the day and become Victorian School children. What an incredible day we had!
We have been busy learning different skipping skills and techniques in preparation for the Year 2 Catholic Schools Skipping Festival. The skipping festival was lots of fun and the children did extremely well!
