Good morning Year 2,

 

I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous weather yesterday.

 

Today is a Holy Day of obligation as it is the Ascension of Our Lord.  We would have been attending mass if we were at school.  It is important to keep saying our prayers, especially during these times.

Dan and Emily from One Life Music have added a new weekly worship:

I hope you are all keeping well.

Over the last couple of weeks my son and daughter have been busy outside planting vegetables including cress, lettuce and radishes.  They are coming along nicely.  We also planted a sunflower seed and are looking forward to seeing how tall it will grow.

As May is the month of Mary, we also had a go at creating our own May altar.  I have attached a picture for you to see.  Perhaps you could have a go at creating your own.

 

I have added a new maths problem and set some new 2Dos on Purple Mash.

Don't forget to share all the things you are doing at home.  I love hearing from you.

Monday 4th May,

 

Good morning Year 2. 

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend.

Friday is a Bank Holiday to commemorate VE Day.  VE stands for Victory in Europe and it has been 75 years since World War II ended.  I have added a Powerpoint and reading comprehension about VE Day.  Perhaps you could have a go at writing a postcard to a family member to tell them about your VE Day celebrations, as if you were there.  You could draw a picture on the other side of your postcard to show what you did and what you saw.

Good morning Year 2,

 

It was so lovely to speak to all your families and some of the children yesterday.  It sounds like you are busy at home completing various activities.  Keep up the hard work.  I am so proud of you all.

As it is the month of May, it is a time where we think about Our Lady.  It would be lovely if we could say the rosary with our families at home.  Perhaps you could do some art work and research on Our Lady.

Well done to Brooklyn and Binta for completing some of the 2Dos on Purple Mash.  Also to Omar and Christopher for some super book reviews.  Please keep the book reviews coming!  I really am enjoying reading them.

I will keep adding 2Dos on Purple Mash.  I have also added a new maths problem and work based on Year 2 common exception words.

Good morning Year 2,

 

What a beautiful day it was yesterday.  We decided it was definitely a day for outdoor learning.  My two children had a go at creating their own Easter Gardens.  You can see their pictures below.  They just used things they could find in the garden.  If any of you have had a go at making your own, please do send me some pictures.  I would love to see them.

 

It was fantastic to see Renesamae sharing her beautiful palm cross on our school twitter page.  Well done Renesamae.  Keep up the hard work!

Friday 3rd April

 

Good morning children,

I hope you are all well.

Did any of you clap for the NHS last night?  There was lots of clapping on my street.  People were even banging pots and pans and blowing whistles.  It was great to see everyone coming together to remember all of those who are working hard to keep us safe.

I have included a template of a rainbow.  Perhaps you could colour it in and put it in your window.

This weekend I would like you to find things that are special to you.  See the document below.  

It would be lovely to say a prayer together with your family.  This will bring us closer to God and one another during this time.

I have added the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi and Eternal Rest.  These are two of the prayers that we would learn in Year 2.

Dan and Emily from One Life Music have added a weekly worship.  You might remember some of the songs that we sang together when they came to our school for our Lenten retreat day.  You can find this at:

Take care

Mrs McGovern

 

 

Thursday 26th March

 

Good morning Year 2,

I am missing you all.  Keep safe and healthy

Year 2

 

25th March

 

Hello children.  I do hope that you are all being very good for your grown ups at home!  Why not set yourself a daily kindness challenge?  Perhaps you could tidy your bedroom or help lay the table for dinner.

At 11am, the Pope has asked for everyone to pray the Lord's Prayer. 

Today I would like you to write your own prayer for the world.

Hello and welcome to the Year 2 Class Page. 

We hope you have had a wonderful summer and we are very excited for the busy year ahead! 

The Year 2 team consists of Mrs McGovern and Mrs Wear (Class Teachers) and Mrs Fisher and Mr Whelan (Teaching Assistants). 

This page will keep you informed about all of the exciting experiences and learning that will be taking place throughout our time in Year 2. We will upload photographs and videos regularly so that you can share in our learning journey.

Here is some important information for you:                                                                                                     

PE

PE will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the Autumn Term. Children will need their full PE kits. 

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be returned on the following Wednesday. We really appreciate your support in ensuring that homework is completed and your child's book is returned every week. 

Spelling

We use a spelling scheme where children will have a daily spelling lesson with a weekly spelling focus. 

Reading

It is extremely important that children read on a daily basis, with opportunities for an adult to hear them read/ discuss their reading. In Year 2, the expectation is that they read for 10 minutes every night and have their reading record signed by an adult. Please could you remind your child that they need to bring their book to school with them every day. Children in Year 2 will have the opportunity to change their reading books throughout the week. We encourage children to read their book more than once so that they become more familiar with their book and can read it fluently and with expression.  

We value your support with your child's learning and we are so excited to see your children grow, learn and achieve this year! 

Mrs Wear and Mrs McGovern.

Year 2 had the most wonderful time at the seaside! We went to Weston Super Mare as part of our 'Beachcombers' topic. The children absolutely loved playing in the sand. They built sandcastles, dug holes and buried each other! The donkey rides were the best part! We finished the day by eating chips and ice cream on the seafront. The children were exhausted after such a busy day and the coach journey home was very quiet! The teachers were extremely proud of all of the children for their excellent behaviour and positive attitudes. Well done Year 2! 

As part of National Poetry Day Year 2 learnt "She sells sea shells..." They worked in groups to learn the tongue twister off by heart. They also wrote their own seaside poems based upon their senses. Have a listen to our wonderful poems. 

As part of our Wellbeing day on Thursday 10th October, the children in Year 2 took part in  a variety of activities to encourage them to look after their bodies and minds. We thought about the things that make us feel happy and we did some Zumba! We also took part in a Yoga session and made fruit kebabs. We listened to the story 'Ruby's worry' and we talked about what we can do when we have a worry.  The children really enjoyed the day.
