Week 4

This Monday, Class 2 took part in an investigation into how different surfaces affect a toy cars movement. 


The surfaces they tested were bubble wrap, wood, carpet and the surface of our tables. Class 2 measured how far their vehicle moved and discussed if lots or little friction was present. 


Well done scientists on a fantastic investigation and yet another great week of learning!

Week 3

Anti-Bullying Week


This week, we have learnt what the word bullying means.


We know that it is everybody’s responsibility to make sure that people are treated kindly.


On Wednesday, scenarios from our Helping Hands Role Play Scenario Cards were read out by Miss Garratt and volunteers acted the scenarios out for the class.

We took part in a discussion on: What could the people in the scenario do differently?

If you saw this happening, what could you do to help?


Class 2 have all worked very hard this week and shown kindness to each other. 
Well done everyone on another great week in school!

Week 2


On Thursday 11th November 2021, Class 2 took part in our first mass in church.


We sang hymns together with Class 1 and Father Declan. Then, members of Class 2 read in our mass.


We practised in school and church then, read the first reading which was a reading from the first letter of John, the responsorial psalm, alleluia and bidding prayers.


Class 2 were so respectful and well-behaved in church. They also read and sang beautifully.

Well done to everyone on your hard work!

Have a wonderful weekend and well-deserved rest,

Week 1

Questioning Thomas Farriner from the bakery on Pudding Lane

Today, we created our own questions to ask Thomas Farriner after we read the section in our class book about his bakery and the events that unfolded in it. 


Then, some children took on the role of Thomas Farriner and we interviewed him in the classroom. 


We asked question including:

Why did you not check if the flames in your oven were out that evening?

Could you smell the smoke from the fire?

How did you escape to safety?


Class 2 created some fantastic questions and really engaged well with our session, showing excellent knowledge of our topic. 


Well done Class 2 on an excellent first week back at school!

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
