Cadbury World trip
Year 2 really enjoyed their day out to Cadbury World! We learnt all about the history of chocolate and where chocolate came from. We learnt all about the Cadbury family and how they became successful. Our favourite parts were tasting the chocolate and the Cadabra ride!
British Science Week
Children have taken part in a variety of workshops this morning as part of British Science week. The theme this year is exploration and discovery. The children enjoyed making electric circuits, using magnets to play a game as well as making fizzy colours!
Junior STEM LEGO Workshop
The children have all taken part in a LEGO workshop. They had to design a motorised swing. The children really enjoyed the challenge of making their own swing and then programming the computer to move it.
St. Mary's 80th Birthday Celebration
Children in Year 2 found out about what life was like in the 1970's. They watched clips of cartoons such as Bagpuss and danced to ABBA. They got to taste Artic roll and angel delight. The children even tried their hand at being 'pop' artisits.
The Winter Olympics
The children took part in a winter Olympic themed afternoon. They took part in a variety of fun activities such as design an outfit for the bobsleigh team, make a ski jumper, identifying flags from around the world and a quiz.
The children in Year 2 have been very generous and have brought into school lots of food for the food bank collection. Thank you to all who have supported this good cause.
On Tuesday we had our annual Christmas lunch. We made Christmas hats and our teachers joined us at lunchtime to celebrate! Merry Christmas everyone!
Stoke City assembly
On Tuesday 28th November, we had two special visitors from Stoke City Football Club. They came to tell us about the "Super 7's" and we got a goodie bag with lots of treats! We have even been given free tickets to go and see Stoke City vs West Brom!
Year 2's visit to the cinema
On Tuesday 14th November, Year 2 walked to the cinema to watch 'Captain Underpants' as part of the film festival. Everybody behaved exceptionally well and really enjoyed the film (especially the comfy reclining chairs!)
Fire Station Visit
All of Year 2 went to visit Newcastle Fire Station as part of our Great Fire of London topic. The children were shown around the fire station and they looked at how the uniform had changed over the years. They were shown the different kinds of equipment that the fire engine has on board. The children learned about fire safety and the importance of smoke alarms and not playing with matches. Finally all the children had a go at using the hoses which they all really enjoyed.
Blessed Sacrament Festival
The children took part in the Blessed Sacrament Festival. They went to the chapel to reflect on Jesus and His love for us. The chapel was beautifully decorated with all the flowers that the children across the school had brought in. It was a lovely prayerful time.
The children have been finding out about different types of materials.
We have investigated how cornflour and water change from being a solid to liquid and back again when you do different things to it.
We have also investigated the absorbency of materials. We tested a range of materials to find out which was the best at wiping up spills.
