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 1
As we approach the end of Year 2, the children in Year 2S are preparing for their end of key stage assessments - but that doesn't mean that the fun is gone from Year 2S!
This term we will be taking part in a number of exciting events...
On Tuesday 10th April our whole class will be visiting the World Museum Liverpool to see the Terracotta Warrior exhibition as part of our whole school Curriculum Enrichment project.
We have a trainee teacher working with Year 2S this term. The children have worked hard for Miss O'Connor and she is eager to continue to work with Year 2S on our whole curriculum.
Please take a look at our curriculum map to see what exciting work we will be undertaking as part of our wider Foundation curriculum.
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.
