Welcome to Year 2
Our teacher is Mrs Kelsall.
We are helped by Ms Cooper
Welcome back to a new school year. The children have settled in nicely and are working hard.
We have solved the mystery of the Queen's missing knickers and we're pleased that our news reports were not leaked to the BBC! Keep a look out for those police helicopters and sparrows children! If you need more of an explanation, you may need to ask your child!
We had an amazing time at Hoghton Tower today! The children listened well and asked some super questions - the people showing us around even offered some of the children a job! We saw the room where King James 1 stayed in and some 'smelly peasants' had to go and pay a penny to touch the king's hand in the hope that they would be healed from their diseases!
We especially enjoyed going down into the dungeons where it was very cold and damp. We even spotted 'Jimmy' sleeping in the corner.
Unfortunately, we were only allowed to take photos in specific places so you will have to ask the children to describe the Great Hall, the well and the state bedrooms. Below are some photographs. A perfect day out!
In our Topic work, we've been learning all about Castles. If you look carefully around the classroom, you will see some very familiar knights!
Don't forget to return your permission slips for our trip to Hoghton Tower on Tuesday 9th October, it should be a great day out.
Don't forget to watch our powerpoint below!
Well done to the 4 boys and 4 girls that represented our school at the Tri-Golf competition at Heysham Golf club. We had a brilliant afternoon and they had a very good team spirit. We are very proud of you all!
Year 2 had a fun and creative week during world week! Our country was Australia and we chose the book Tiddalik the Frog which is an Australian aboriginal tale to inspire us to do some drama, writing and art work. We were also lucky enough to learn about another country called Brazil and had a go at some traditional samba drumming.
We have been doing some math's challenges in the Nature Area and we had lots of fun!
In RE Year 2 had a brilliant time visiting St Luke's Church. Mr Wakelin kindly showed us around the church and allowed us to explore the different features inside and outside. The children had fun completing some challenges which involved finding out how many crosses there are inside and outside of the church and when the church was built. After that, year 2 had a chance to look around the prayer spaces inside of the church. We had a fabulous time!
With the weather warming up, what better topic to look at than Seasides Past and Present. The children are already excited about going on our class visit to Fleetwood Museum where we will explore Seaside holidays in the past. Please remember to return their permission slips to school as soon as possible.
As part of the topic, we will be making Mr Punch puppets, writing some playscripts to use in our Punch and Judy Puppet Theatre and our classroom will be transformed to look like we are at the seaside! We are hoping to create a class assembly linked to the our Seaside topic so be prepared to put on your summer outfits and come along to learn some more.
