On Thursday 1st February, Year 2 went to the Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedrals in Liverpool. We discussed and compared both cathedrals as special places of worship for Christian people and enjoyed our lunch on the steps of the Metropolitan Cathedral. Then, when we returned to school Year 2 wrote some AMAZING writing describing our trip and the similarities and differences of the two places of worship.
Please look at our photographs below when the Community Support Officers came into school to give Year 2 a pre-Bonfire Night safety talk!
Last year when Year 2 were Year 1, we took part in a project with BBC Radio to star in episodes of the podcast Swashbuckle. Our episodes are now live on the BBC iPlayer! Please click below to listen to our exciting and hilarious episodes yourself...
Message from Mr Savage:
Summer term 2
Our end of key stage assessments are complete but that definitely doesn't mean that things are slowing down in Year 2!
Miss O'Connor is with us for two more weeks at the start of the second summer term. In those first two weeks we are going on three trips: Pizza Express, Liverpool South Parkway and Claremont Farm on the Wirral! We will also be going on a follow-up visit to Garston Library after our very successful visit in the Spring.
Our spellings this half term will be a consolidation of all the spelling rules the children have been taught this year. We will also be going over some of those trickier rules that we need a little more practice on.
Have you joined SeeSaw yet? There are loads of photographs and other information pertinent to Y2S on there!
If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch,
Mr. Savage and the Year 2 team
Please note that PE will be on Monday afternoons and Friday afternoons.

As part of our Science work this Autumn, we went on a mini beast hunt in the school grounds. We found some mini habitats but not many. In class we discussed how we could encourage more insects and animals to make Banks Road their home. Look at the photographs below of our mini beast hunt...
This half term we worked with The Storybarn and The Reader Org enjoying some interactive storytelling, exploring, sharing and discovering our love of books!
