Congratulations to Nhi and Beau. Your hard work has earned you a place on the top table next week.
Mr O’Hara was a good sport, joining in with the performance, but Gabrielle was the star of this section.
Year 2’s Trip to Astley Bridge Park.
As a reward for all of their hard work this year and for doing a super job in the KS1 SATs, Year 2 spent a whole afternoon in the sunshine at our local park. All of the children (and teachers) had a wonderful afternoon. We played games, sang songs and even had a picnic! What a wonderful afternoon we all had! The children thoroughly deserved their treat and have been an absolute pleasure to teach this year. I am sure they will keep it up as they move on into the juniors. Well done Year 2! 🙂
This half term we have been learning about the geography of China through focusing on the main human and physical features of the country, helping us to learn about the wider world.
We have learned about some geographical similarities and differences between China and the United Kingdom where we live. Also we have improved our map skills using atlases, world maps and globes, along with using webcams and Google Maps.
We have really enjoyed our topic so far and have learned lots about the Chinese culture. Next week we are even going to try some authentic Chinese food! YUM!
WILF: Write 3 facts that you have learned about China.
WILF: Can you write a description of Baba Yaga so the rest of the school know just how gruesome she is?
Come and look at the wonderful Digital Literacy that Year 2 have been doing on Purple Mash this half term.
Our RE topic this half term was New Beginnings.
We have been thinking about how God is with us at every new beginning and have written some new morning prayers to offer him praise each new day.

With another exciting school year drawing to a close, we have been thinking back to our favourite moments in Class 2.
Mr O’Hara’s favourite memory from Year 2 was the wonderful trip to Smithills’ Farm with Year 1 and Year 2 because we had such a fantastic day learning about the different animals that lived there.
Mrs Kettle loved sports day because she enjoyed seeing all of the huge smiles on the mums and dads faces when their children were having fun racing.
What was your favourite memory of Year 2?
What are you most looking forward to about moving into the Juniors?
