Summer 2

Week 4

This Friday, we travelled to the Sea Life Centre in Manchester to discover more about sea creatures for our Beach Combers topic!


We had a fantastic school trip and the children were very well behaved and focused on learning about the different sea creatures we saw. We were blown away by the beautiful animals we saw and the fantastic facts we read about them.


After exploring the aquarium and all it had to offer, we had the wonderful opportunity to interact with animals in the rock pool exhibit in the centre. The children were so kind and careful with the animals, gently placing their hands in the water to touch the starfish and be cleaned by the small creatures in the water. 


Resulting from the fantastic behaviour of all in Class 2, we had the opportunity to have a short play in the play area and then, we watched the turtles being fed. 


I am so proud of the children in Class 2 and their wonderful enthusiasm for learning, we had a wonderful trip!

Week 3

What a fantastic parent's afternoon we had!


After watching videos and discussing the different types of sea creatures you can find in the sea and their fascinating habitats, and writing instructions on how to make a shoe box habitat, Class 2 invited their parents in to get creative and make their own habitats for a variety of sea creatures. 


Most of us used shoe boxes, shells, stones and sand, alongside a variety of different resources, to create our very own habitats. The result was incredible and the children created some wonderful shoe box habitats. 


Thank you to all of the parents and family that attended our parents afternoon and made it so brilliant, and to Class 2 who worked very hard and produced some wonderful work!

Week 2

On Friday, we travelled to the EIS, together with our Class 5 children, to the Federation of Corpus Christi's Sports Day and it was a fantastic day. 


From the moment we set off from St Helen's, Class 2 behaved wonderfully and they showed such great enthusiasm towards our Federation's Sports Day. 


Sports day included a variety of great sports activities, from Zumba, which we all greatly enjoyed to other activities like running, football, rugby and mini golf.


Class 2 supported each other very well when their friends were taking part in the sports activities. I was so proud to see everyone putting the most effort they could into every sport and to hear them cheering others on!


Everyone greatly enjoyed our day, including myself. It couldn't have been a better Sports Day for myself in Class 2.


Well done to everyone!

Week 1

God's Rule for his People

In our Come and See RE sessions, this week, we spoke about the importance of rules and looked at St Paul’s letter to the Colossians 3: 10-17, God’s people.


We discussed what this reading meant and then went away to enact some stories which show the things that a kind, patient, forgiving and loving person might do.


The children went on to explain why it is important to keep rules and they did a fantastic job.


Everyone showed great understanding of the Christian values our school holds.

Keep up the hard work Class 2!
