Aspire to be more

2017 - 2018

Class 2 made their own sock puppets as part of our DT work. They really stuck to their designs and did a great job. Watch this space for the puppet show!!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! Our sunny visit to Blackpool as part of our history topic was fabulous and the children had a great time.

Starting our new history topic about Holidays in the Past, the children worked in groups to label the activities they could see on a beach holiday.

The children took advantage of the glorious weather and the variety of plants in the wild flower area to complete their science assessment.

Craig Parkilson, a mole expert, came into school to tell the children all about moles. They had two dead moles to look at, touch and ask questions about. The children were very interested and asked some sensible questions.

Outside Classroom Day - the children were set the challenge of building the iconic Blackpool tower to coincide with our history topic this year. The groups came up with some ingenious plans to make the tower using recyclable materials. They looked fantastic!

Super Sports Day! What a fantastic time the children - and parents - had on Sports Day this year. The weather was perfect and the children were fantastic. Thank you to everybody who came to support the children.

......and relax! Meditation in Class 2 as part of Health Week.

The children celebrated the Royal Wedding by having a picnic outside at lunch time. The weather was glorious and the children were in high spirits. We also decorated a giant wedding cake with dress and suit designs, invitations, crests, bouquets of flowers and facts about Harry and Meghan. The crowning glory on the top of the cake were plasticine models of Harry and Meghan expertly sculpted by Oliver Miskolski and Emilia Valentine.

As part of their science topic on ‘Plants’, the children have been investigating the change in growth of a broad bean seed when growing conditions change. They record their findings each week.

Whole school sports event at St. Mary’s School. The children were brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. St.Mary’s were great hosts.

Felicity’s mum very kindly brought in their baby gosling called Lozzy. Even though she was only weeks old, Lozzy was very confident and said hello to all the children. She was very cute.

Safer surfing in Year 2 today.

St. Anne's Art Exhibition. What fantastic artists we have at St.Anne's! All the children produced some amazing art work from maths week and the exhibition was stunning!

Two of our altar servers from Year 6, came into Year 2 to tell us all about their role and what they wear. The children asked lots of interesting questions.

Maths Week. The children really enjoyed learning about maths through art this week and produced some great art work too. Their focus was Shape, Space and measure and the artist they studied was Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

The Journey to Bethlehem

The children used the app. LEGO movie to create their video.

In DT the children designed and made a seasonal wrap using chicken, salad, cranberry sauce and apple sauce. Although the wrap was a little bit tricky to roll, the children enjoyed eating them!

The children followed each others instructions to make jam sandwiches

Anti Bullying Week. The children enjoyed watching a performance for anti bullying week - 'All Different, All Equal' - and then carried on working in class. They made a jigsaw where each piece showed their individuality and how we all fit together well as a class.

The children were given instructions to follow. They made paper hats, paper aeroplanes, puppets and a gift wrapped box. The children realised that they had to make sure they followed the instructions perfectly to end up with a good result.

The Halloween disco, once again , was a great success. The costumes were amazing and the pumpkins were very creative. Well done Ellie Holt for creating the winning design!

The children went on an historical walk into the 'Place where they live' - Leyland. Their guide was Dr David Hunt from the South Ribble Museum. He told us all sort of fascinating facts about Leyland and we even got to have a look inside St. Andrew's church. I don't think the children realised quite how old their hometown is! Look at the pictures and get them to tell you all about it.

The children were really inspired by the work they did for Outside Classroom Day and made their own sculptures at home. Here are a few of them.

The children created a sculpture in the style of artist Andrew Goldsworthy for Outside classroom day. They used different coloured leaves, sticks and stones to create their design.
