Y2 visit St.Cuthberts Church

Today Y2 went on a trip to St.Cuthberts church in Wrose. They had a brilliant time. They had to find different clothes or objects from different bibles. There was a Chinese bible a Jewish bible and an English bible. Also a Jewish Torah which they rolled out . They saw the crown of thorns that Jesus wore on the cross. The people who spoke to the whole class had been to our school before and they were called Mr Froud and Mr Blake.

Year 2S Class Assembly

Today 2S did an amazing assembly all about Spring time and growing. They all spoke loudly and clearly. They told us about how they had set up a cress seed experiment. In the experiment, they put one tray of seeds with water on the windowsill, one without water on the windowsill, one in the fridge with water and one in the dark cupboard with water. I wonder how this experiment will turn out? At the end of their assembly they sang a song about a tiny seed growing in Spring. They sang beautifully. They did some really good acting to the story of Billy’s Sunflower. As well as the story, they showed us some painted pictures of sunflowers that they had created of the famous painting by the artist Vincent van Gogh. Their paintings were amazing. 2S are also doing a competition in their class to see whose sunflower grows the tallest.

Well Done!

Safer Internet Day 2015

This Tuesday 10th February  was safer internet day. The digital leaders were very brave and did an assembly all about safer internet day. They did a quiz to test us on how much we new on safer internet day. We had to put thumbs up or thumbs down. It turns out that we know lots about the internet. In class we did some safer internet promises and lots of them had a lot of thought in them. Most of the children have already started doing their promises. The digital leaders, who did the assembly, were very nervous when they were doing the assembly. Even though we already knew lots about the internet ,the assembly that the digital leaders did has helped us understand even more.

2G created their own rap about safer internet day! They thought really carefully about what they were going to include in their rap. They then practised their rap a lot and used the iPads to record it. It was clear that they worked very hard and enjoyed doing it!

2G’s Class Assembly

2G performed their fantastic assembly today, about the Great Fire of London in 1666! They spoke loud and clear, and everyone learned lots about the disastrous fire in London, many many years ago.

They enjoyed their interesting visit from Alex Fellowes, playing the role of a witness of the great fire, and learned lots of fascinating things from him. 2G  did brilliant in their assembly, as well as having lots of fun telling everyone about their fantastic time.

Year 2’s Trip to The Chocolate Factory

On the 23rd January, Year 2 went on a trip to York, to visit the famous chocolate factory! They had a fantastic time, and enjoyed all the great activities that they did. The visit was to support the work they have been doing about Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

They learnt lots, but loved every minute too! They learnt about the long history of chocolate, and how it all started, as well as designing their own creative and cleverly made chocolate machines. Also, they made their very own Willy Wonka chocolate bars, which they all loved the best!
