St. Ann's Catholic Primary School – Stocksbridge, Deepcar & Penistone

Welcome to Year 2’s Class Page!

Summer

We had an exciting visitor this morning. Gareth Howell, from Valley Judo came to show us some amazing Judo moves. Hajime!

St Ann’s Pentecost Parade Friday 7th June!
Year 2 loved taking part in our Annual Pentecost Parade. We created our very own Pentecost Kites to fly whilst we spread the GOOD NEWS!


This term in Year 2 we are looking into the famous artist George Seuart and his Pointillism paintings. This is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of colour are applied in patterns to form one, strong image!

We have become Pointillism Artists ourselves, re-creating some of his famous pieces such as ‘A Sunday on La Grande Jatte’.

Make your mark

We love taking part in ACTIVE lessons throughout the school day, whether it be Number Line Races in Maths, Spelling Yoga, Go Noodle, Super-movers Brain Breaks or Fencing!

Spring

In Spring, Year 2 became World Wide Explorers, finding out about the 7 Continents and 5 Oceans of the World.

We designed and created Terrific Tour Guide brochures to share with Reception and Year 1!

In Science we explored how plants GERMINATE. We grew our own cress seeds, in many different environments to test which was the best. We then made egg and cress sandwiches. Yum!

Year 2 loved getting their fingers green with Mrs Beaumont during Forest School sessions. We planted a range of flowers and vegetables within our school grounds, they look amazing!

We have been lucky enough to discover what fantastic wildlife and plants our School environment has by taking part in leaf, plants and flower treasure hunts.

Design and Technology!
We also looked at Animals around the World. Seeing which animals lived in what climates and why. At the end of our topic we designed and created Habitat Boxes. How fantastic!

Class Trip to Weston Park Museum!

The boys and girls found our journey to the Museum extremely exciting!
We spent the day exploring the Museum, particularly the Habitats section.
We designed our own collages of habitats with the Museum tour guide! It was a busy, fun filled day!

World Book Day!
This year, for World Book Day, we came to school in our pyjama’s. Our class shared their favourite bedtime story with their book buddies too!

Autumn

Year 2 took a step back in time, all the way to 1665 where the PLAGUE was rapidly spreading through villages!

Class Trip to Eyam!

We delved deeper into the past in our Science lessons to look at how the deadly diseases spread. Looking under Microscopes at many different germs and identifying how they spread!
