Children from Year 2, Miss Lavelle’s class, today led us in an assembly which focussed upon how God will always be with us as we travel along the journey of life. They showed us how far they have come on their Christian journey and talked about their hopes for the future. The first video below explains some of the pupils’ aspirations, the second how we must have high hopes!
Miss Chiodo’s class had fun investigating which toy cars travelled the furthest distance and how force could affect this. They predicted which car would travel the furthest before they set them off. The children used tape measures to measure how far each car travelled and then compared their results with one another. The class concluded that the harder you push a car the further it will travel!
All classes at St. Philip’s RC regularly hold prayer and worship sessions. During the month of October Year 2 had a prayerful service on The Rosary. Together, they said a decade of the Rosary using rosary beads. Also, the children blessed each other with holy water from Lourdes. It was such a reverent and peaceful service.
Year 2, Miss Chiodo’s class, have had great fun making scone bread after reading The Little Red Hen story. The pupils used their hands to make different shapes. Some put raisins in the mixture. They were so tasty!
Pupils from Miss Haigh’s Year 2 class have this week produced some outstanding work in ICT. They have created graphs, spreadsheets and databases as part of their science and numeracy work. Have a look at some of the photographs below – their work looks fantastic! Well done.
Year 2 recently visited Stockley Farm. We had a great time and did lots of fun and interesting things:
- We went on a nature walk
- We fed pigs, goats and lambs
- We held cuddly, soft rabbits and guinea-pigs
- We played on the adventure playground
- We had fun on the bouncy castle
- We learnt about the dairy where the cows are milked
- We had a ride in a tractor
- We met the cows, sheep, horses and birds of prey
We hope you enjoy looking at our photos!
The 2010 KS1 and 2 SATs are now fast approaching! Pupils, parents and staff are now working at a vigorous pace to ensure that the best possible results are achieved.
