Autumn Term 2017
On November 24th, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Ranger AJ from The Creepy Crawly Show! He brought in lots of amazing creatures from all over the world, and we were even brave enough to hold some. We loved the barn owl and the giant African snails – they were very slimy! Thank you to the PTA and to Mrs Whyte for organising a very special event, which tied in so well with our learning.
We look forward now to thinking about Advent and Christmas, and cannot wait to be part of the Christmas performance next week!
Year Two have had a very busy half term! We have continued to look at animals in their habitats and have also learnt all about Guy Fawkes and his Gunpowder Plot. We enjoyed our first KS1 Mass of the year with Father John and loved to have the opportunity to share that special time with lots of parents and younger siblings who were able to come to school and join us.
We have been focusing on Saints, Prayers and Feasts in God Matters, and last week we had the opportunity to make our own, very special, Rosary beads. We talked all about the special prayers that we say, and we took some time to pray in class using our beads.
Year 2 go to Marwell Zoo
Year 2 had the most wonderful day at Marwell Zoo. The weather was warm and dry and all the animals were out enjoying the sunshine. We saw the red lemurs, the gazelles, the tigers, the Humboldt penguins and our two favourites, the Meerkats and the giraffes.
We also visited the Education centre for a workshop about the different animals and their natural habitats around the world. Whilst we were there, we were able to take a very close look at a stick insect and stroke its back. After lunch, we went to Tropical world where it was very warm. We saw some of the amazing animals from the rainforest such as the colourful poisonous frogs and the hardworking ants. It was very exciting.
We all had an amazing day and a very memorable school trip.
