Castle Prints

Year 2 have been amazing artists this week! Linked to our castles topic, they designed their image and worked carefully to imprint their design onto a piece of foam without it breaking! Then this week, we rolled printing ink on to the foam and squashed it onto the paper. TheĀ children loved seeing their hard work pay off with these beautiful castle prints.

26th Apr 2022 – Electricians

Year 2 have been marvellous electricians! We have been discussing what electricity is, why it is so important and where it comes from. In our experiment, we were testing different objects to categorise them into whether they were electrical conductors or insulators. The children started by testing classroom objects, before moving on to some more ‘interesting’ objects like Mrs Priest’s sandwich! The children were then able to conclude that objects made from metal are electrical conductors but objects made of plastic, wood, glass (and bread!) are not. A brilliant time had by our super scientists.

18th Oct 2021 – Trip to Beamish

Year 2 had a fantastic day out at Beamish Museum last week. They learnt about home life in the past, the differences between homes built now and then, and they looked at the changing roles of women by comparing home life now to how it used to be. Miss Davison, Miss Tetley and Mrs Charlton said the children were a pleasure to take out of school – everyone had a wonderful day.

Y2 Hoopstarz

Yesterday, our Y2 pupils enjoyed a Hoopstarz taster session with Tracey from KidzRfit.

Mrs Kearney said “The session was brilliant. It’s all the children have talked about since, they have even taken the hoops outside for more practice!”

Miss Tetley commented, “Coastguards are outside now practising again with some hoops.”

Well done everyone!
