Year 2 news...

Merseyside Police Band

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to ‘The Merseyside Police Band’ earlier this week. We loved all the songs, but especially the Disney ones! We learnt all about the different instruments that make up the band. We didn’t want your performance to end. Well done everyone!


Nocturnal Animals Homework

Thank you to all Year 2 pupils who have brought in their Easter  homework.

 

A particular well done to Abbey for a fantastic Nocturnal Animals homework. We love that you wanted to go to so much effort to create a beautiful poster. Your typing, cutting and creating all came together to make a brilliant final product.

Scottish Day

Year 2 have had a great day pretending to be on the Scottish Island of Struay. They have painted landmarks and maps, drawn Katie Morag’s family tree, created a 3D sculpture of Struay and written about Grandma Mainland and Neilly Beag’s wedding. What a busy day it has been!


Augmented Reality Minibeasts

As part of British Science Week Year 2 used the power of Augmented Reality to discover, investigate and research Minibeasts. Take a look at our class journal that recorded the whole afternoon.


‘Mad Science’ Assembly

What a fascinating Friday Morning! We really enjoyed carrying out lots of fun and exciting experiments with Turbo Tom! Science is really like magic! We really couldn’t believe our eyes… from water turning into juice, to flying water, to green snotty foam and even a genie in a bottle! Take a look at some of the photographs below:


Attendance Treat

McCulloch’s Magical Magicians in 2M were the winners of the most improved attendance. We spent our money on a treat of cake and ice cream…we even enjoyed some strawberry sauce too! Yum!

 


World Book Day

We took part in our World Book Day event this year by decorating a hat. We had to catwalk through Lower Hall to show our hats as best we could. Can you guess which books these hats represent?


Safer Internet Day

We had a great time working with One Day Creative in a pirate themed e-Safety workshop. The session reminded us how important it is to have our own passwords, to keep our information private and to be respectful on the Internet.


Baking Cakes

Year 2 have enjoyed making cupcakes after reading Katie Morag and the Baking Day Secret. We all decorated our cupcakes once they had cooled and took them home to eat. Delicious!
