Year 2 Blog Week 33

Thank you for supporting your children with the whole school Home Learning on St. Paul. The artwork, posters, fact files and story retellings are fantastic! We have displayed all of this wonderful work on a map which shows St. Paul’s missionary journeys.

This week we continued our learning on St. Paul by focusing on the story of  Paul and Silas in prison. The children thought about how Paul and Silas felt in prison and how they sang songs of praise to God. The children composed their own songs of praise to the tune of Happy. Their songs were brilliant!!!

We finished our week with a special Act of Worship during which we prayed for our Dads.

Wishing you all a very Happy Father’s Day.

Home Learning: Bedtime Sleep Survey.

Have a lovely weekend.

It has been a very busy first week back! This week Year 2 have been focusing on the story of Pentecost which celebrates and remembers the coming of the Holy Spirit. The children acted out the story and created some beautiful paintings depicting the Disciples being filled with the Holy Spirit! Year 2 then wrote up their own newspaper articles for the ‘Jerusalem News’, reporting on the coming of the Holy Spirit.

 

In Maths we have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes. The children had great fun making their own 3D shapes and creating WANTED shape posters.

It has been another busy week in Year 2! The children took part in a number of activities linked to our Spirituality Week. The theme of our Spirituality Week this year was Meeting Jesus. The Prayer stations were organised by Year 5 this year.  The children offered prayers through blowing bubbles, choosing a stone, creating a prayer chain for different countries and writing prayers for different people. Each day the children have spent time reflecting on their day in a Spirituality Diary.

 

Please find the Whole School Home Learning attached below.

Enjoy the holidays!

It has been a very busy week in Year 2. The children have worked incredibly hard this week and I am extremely proud of them.

In Religion we have been learning about the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The children created some beautiful artwork and thought about why Mary was chosen to be the mother of Jesus. We thought about the goodness that flowed from Mary’s Immaculate heart and asked how we can  follow Mary’s example today.

In Science we have been learning about animals and their habitats. This week we focused on animals that live underground. The children delighted in observing the gardener’s best friend – The Earthworm!

Home Learning: Spend some time reading your favourite story!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Bring flowers of the rarest, bring flowers of the fairest

From garden and woodland and hillside and vale;

Our full hearts are swelling, our glad voices telling

The praise of the loveliest flower of the vale.

O Mary, we crown you with blossoms today,

Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.

Today we remembered and honoured Our Lady with our May procession.  We reflected on the life of Our Lady and processed towards the Peace Garden where we placed our flowers on our May altar.

Year 2 had great fun perfecting their mapping skills this week. The rain did not dampen our spirits or slow us down!

Home Learning: Mathletics and Spag.com. Please find the KS1 SATs timetable on the Year 2 class page.
