Welcome to Year 2
Dates for your diary
Own clothes day - Friday 29th June
2M work scientifically in the outdoor area with Miss Gronow as they conduct a minibeast hunt!
In science, we have been learning about living things and their habitats. This week, we were investigating the outdoor area to research the different types of microhabitats on our school grounds. We used magnifying glasses to explore the minibeasts within their microhabitats. We worked together in groups to compare different microhabitats and recorded our findings using our clipboards. We really enjoyed working outside!
Easter art competition
Miss Fitzgerald and Miss Martin had a very tough job choosing their winners for the art competition today! All of the entries were amazing and the children had put in so much effort! We were super proud of all of the children's work. The prizes up for grabs were a sketchbook, pencils and oil pastels.
The winner from 2M was Scarlett! The little washing line in her Easter garden made Miss Martin smile. Well done Scarlett!
2D's winner was Josh! His Easter bonnet was lovely and had some great tiny detail on. Well done Josh!
Year 2 Swimming Gala
This week 13 year 2 children took part in a swimming gala against many schools from across the city. Mrs Parry and Mrs Woods accompanied the children to Wavertree Aquatics Centre where they competed in lots of different styles of races in the water, including running, jumping, pushing a ball, blowing a float and many others!
Of course, the children did so well and Emmaus came 2nd!
What an amazing achievement for the school!
2M spent time this week investigating different materials and writing about their properties. They investigated glass, metal, stone, wood and lots of different types of fabric. They talked about man made and natural materials and how important they are. Great work 2M!
THE BEATLES DAY OUT
Year 2's visit to the Beatles story and the childhood homes of the Beatles was a great day! We had a fantastic time dancing the twist and listening to vinyl records. The children were a just a little embarrassed when Mrs Neil and Miss Fitzgerald started dancing too though! We toured the exhibition using the headsets and watched videos and talked about what we were learning before visiting the discovery zone. All of us had a great day!
A big thank you goes to the school staff, parents, volunteers and Beatles story staff for a great day.
Many thanks to all the parents who came into school to take part in our 'Maths in Real Life' Roadshow.
The children in Year 2 had an amazing time talking to the parents and playing some challenging activities.
Class 2D have had the fantastic opportunity to have a visit from the quiet critters. They come to look at children while they are working if they are being super well behaved and doing their work with fantastic concentration. Well done 2D! The quiet critters are very impressed!
Art Work in the style of Matisse
The children in Year 2 posed like athletes, made drawings of mannequins in similar poses and cut out their collages. We arranged our cutouts on paper and stuck them in place, just as Henri Matisse did when he used this 'drawing with scissors' style.
Our wonderful collages are on display in the cloakroom for all our families to enjoy.
Designing and Making Healthy Sandwiches
As part of our 'Super-fit Me' topic, we found out about healthy foods and how to have a balanced diet. Before we designed our sandwiches, we had a taster session where we tasted different breads, spreads, fillings and salads so we could choose a good balance of foods for our sandwich. Our challenge was to try a new healthy food that we don't usually eat at home and to try new combinations of foods in our sandwich.
Before 'Absolutely Catering' came for our workshop, we had chosen the foods for our sandwich and drawn what it would look like. Making the sandwich was great fun, because we had to put it together ourselves and make it look appetising. We looked at how Mrs Clifton presents her sandwiches in the school kitchen for some tips. When we had made the sandwich we thought about how successful it was and how it could be improved. You can see from our photos what a fun day it was and we all had a go at trying something new and making it look as tasty as possible.
The children enjoyed a early Christmas extravaganza this week when they visited the popular Reindeer Lodge in Cheshire. They learned lots of interesting facts about Reindeer and the conditions in which they live in the North Pole.
The children were then treated to an amazing Christmas show with elves Bernard, Brains and Candy. The laughed, danced and sang their hearts out! It was an absolute joy for all, including some of our fantastic parents who came along to help.
Just when we thought the day could not get any better in came Mr Santa Claus himself!
Santa was so impressed with all of our children he promised them they would all be on his good list and each of our children received a present from him.
The trip and the children's joy was truly captivating.
Once again all the children were congratulated on their exemplary behaviour and wonderful manners.
It has been such a magical first term. The children are amazing.
We would like to wish all our children and parents a wonderful Christmas time and a peaceful New Year.
Thank you all for our generous gifts and cards.
We will all be merry!
