Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome to Year 2!
Come and have a look at some of the interesting things we have been up to.
Years 1 and 2 - Smoothie making
This week in Years 1 and 2 we had a themed week focusing on Smoothies. We had a jam packed cross curricular week. We wrote instructions in Literacy, investigated prices and profit in Numeracy and healthy eating in Science. The main aim was to design and make group Smoothies to sell in our Summery Fayre. They were of course a big success!
KS1 visited Cullercoats Beach and had a fantastic day. We were a little worried about the weather but we had not to worry about - it stayed dry all day. We had lots of parent helpers, which we would like to thank, as without them we wouldn't have been able to go.
Go Noodle Festival
Year 2 attended the 'Go Noodle' festival at The Parks and we had a fantastic morning. Lots of schools attended the Festival and prizes were awarded to the best 'Noodlers'. We had lots of winners in our Class. We can't wait for the next one!!
Whitley Bay Lighthouse
Year 2 visited St Mary's Lighthouse and had a jam packed day of learning and fun activities. We started our day by Rock Pooling. After that, we climbed the Lighthouse and then had a picnic lunch. We then learnt about life as a Lighthouse Keeper and dressed up in costumes from the period. Finally we ended our day by creating a variety of Sand Art pictures.
Rising Sun Music Festival
Year 2 attended a Music Festival at The Rising Sun Country Park and had a great day. We performed two songs with a Rio Olympics theme. The first was 'Heroes' and the second was 'Crackers Maracas'. We opened our performance with our Samba drumming. We got a huge round of applause and absolutely loved the day. We also really enjoyed watching all of the other schools perform.
The Great Fire of Newcastle and Gateshead
Year 2 had a fantastic Educational Visit to the Discovery Museum. We learnt about how the fire started on the morning of 6th October 1854. We used story actions to help retell the key facts of that eventful morning and some of us even performed a puppet show of the historical events, to the rest of the class. We also investigated photos of the Quayside in Victorian Times and compared them to images of the Quayside today. We had a fantastic day and we then go to explore the rest of the Museum after lunch.
Newcastle United Foundation KS1 Festival
Year 2 showed off their football skills at Churchill Community College by taking part in a carousel of activities. We were joined by other schools which have all had NUFC in their schools. Christopher was even awarded a Christian Value Certificate by a Teacher from Holystone Primary School for 'Respect and Tolerance'; showing that our Christian values are intertwined with sporting values.
