Aspire to be more

Year Two 2016-2017

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside! We all had a fantastic trip to Blackpool. The weather was glorious, the tower was superb, the Punch and Judy show was funny and the sand was perfect for making sandcastles! A great time was had by everyone.

Dance from the Heart. It was another glorious day for Dance from the Heart and the children were amazing. They had some great costumes too. Then they thoroughly enjoyed being entertained by Boogie Storm who were the best dancing storm troopers we've ever seen!

Finley, Alyssa and Alfie really enjoyed dressing up in Victorian children's holiday clothing. The boys thought their outfits were far too hot and scratchy for the beach but Alyssa felt quite comfortable in hers - although she did think it was a lot to wear for swimming!

The children had a fabulous time on Outside Classroom Day. They loved making the mini beast hotel - especially foraging for materials and then finding the mini beasts to go inside. The children worked really hard but had such a fun time and were thrilled with the results. Well done everyone

The children are studying Dance in their PE lessons this half term. They have found some really great ways to move and shape their bodies to represent creatures of the sea.

The children enjoyed searching for habitats on a beautiful walk to the 'Wild Wood' at Worden Park. They saw plenty of holes on the trunks and at the bottom of trees as well as nests in the top branches. We discovered where fungi grows and saw plenty of mini beasts living in grasses and on rotten wood. The children were very enthusiastic about their investigations and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Making our Easter Gardens

Re-enacting Palm Sunday: the children enjoyed laying down their coats and waving Palm branches for the arrival of Jesus and the donkey

Parading in Easter Bonnets

Class 2 performed really well in their Thanksgiving Assembly. They had lots of lines to remember and parts to act out but they really made us all proud. Well done everybody.

The children developed their observational and sketching techniques as they drew the position of their mannequin.

The children studied Christopher Columbus as an explorer from the past and looked at what he would have worn, what he ate on board ship, how he navigated and the type of transport he used.

The children enjoyed their practical maths dividing lesson

Enjoying some quiet reading in our new library

The children were thinking about their health in their Science work and wanted to know how much sugar they were eating in a variety of different products; how to wash their hands correctly and how much exercise they can take in 1 minute. They found the results quite shocking - especially when they found out how much sugar they were eating in their food and drink!

Happy New Year from Mrs Schofield and Class 2

Christmas party and meeting Father Christmas

Anti Bullying Week - the children worked well in their groups for this task

The children used perspective in their drawing to create this town scene

The children worked really hard - and enjoyed - the topic work on the place Where I Live - Leyland

We used inspiration from the school garden to create our pictures in the style of Pop Artist Andy Warhol

Taken from our RE topic on Beginnings, the children have interpreted Psalm 19 1 - 5
