Class 2

Class 2 at the Seaside!

Class 2 have been learning about coastal habitats in science and the human and physical features of the seaside in geography.  As part of our learning, we visited the seaside at Filey with Rainbow Room. We had a lovely picnic, built sandcastles, buried each other in the sand and had a little paddle in the sea. We even had an ice cream at the end of the day! It was a wonderful day and we were all very tired on the way home.

Lotherton Hall

As part of science learning about habitats, Class 2 have visited the Wildlife World at Lotherton Hall. We took part in an interesting workshop with Lyndsey who told us about different habitats. We looked at a range of different replica animal skulls and tried to work out which animal they were from. After that we looked at the different birds in the Wildlife World. We had some time after lunch to explore the beautiful grounds of Lotherton Hall. It was a great day!

Library Visit

On Thursday 21 April 2022, Year 2 went to visit the library at Compton Road in Harehills. The children really enjoyed looking at the books. They also met children's author and storyteller Richard O’Neill and performance artist Keira Martin. What a fabulous trip!
Please take your children to the library if you can. It is free to join and there are no fines for late books.

Skelton Grange Trip

Class 2 had an amazing time at Skelton Grange as part of our science topic, animals including humans. We were thinking about what all humans need to survive: air, food, water and shelter. We pretended we were shipwrecked on an island. We had to work as a team to cross the river, make a shelter with materials we had found, make a spark with a fire steel, escape some pirates and ate some popcorn that we cooked on the fire. It was a brilliant day!

Class 2's Assembly

Class 2 did a fantastic assembly - it was the first class assembly for a long time. They were fantastic. They told us the story of the Hare and the Tortoise and recited the poem 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat'. They also sang a beautiful song and taught the rest of the school the actions too. Well done Class 2!

Party time!

Class 2 had a brilliant Christmas party. They all looked lovely in their party clothes and enjoyed playing lots of fun games and having some Christmas treat too!

Trip to the Minster

As part of our RE topic, we have been learning about the Christmas story. We went to visit Leeds Minster to see the Christmas Story display. In our science topic, we have been learning about different materials and their properties. There were plenty to spot in the Minster!

Christmas Fun

Class 2 parents thoroughly enjoyed coming to watch the children's performance with them. Afterwards, they took part in a fun activity, looked at the children's books, enjoyed a hot chocolate and biscuit and then the children had a visit from Father Christmas!

Kirkstall Toy Museum

Class 2 had a lovely day visiting the Abbey House museum as part of our history topic on Toys from the past. We looked and handled lots of old toys and thought about the difference between old and new toys. After our visit to the museum, we walked across to Kirkstall Abbey and ate our packed lunch there. It was an amazing day!

Guy Fawkes Visited Class 2

As part of our history topic on Guy Fawkes, Class 2 have been looking at historical artefacts to find out how life was different 400 years ago. We looked carefully and drew the artefacts. We also thought carefully about what they were made from and what they might be used for.

International Week - India

Class 2 have had a great week learning about India. We thought about differences and similarities between the UK and India, located India on a map of the world and read an Indian folk tale in literacy called The Tiger Child. Our video shows us performing some traditional Indian hand gestures called Hasthas. We hope you enjoy them.

Science

Class 2 are learning about plants in science. They have been learning about the difference between seeds and bulbs. We planted some daffodil, tulip and snowdrop bulbs in the raised beds. We are waiting excitedly to watch our bulbs grow in the springtime.

Sports Day

The sun shone and the children had a fantastic time at sports day - well done everybody!

Butterflies
As part of our science topic on life cycles, Class 2 watched a caterpillar change into a pupa. Then after a week or so, the pupa hatched into a painted lady butterfly. We kept the butterfly in our class for a few days and then we released it into the St. Peter's garden to fly away.

 

Gardening
As part of our science topic about growing plants from seeds, Class 2 planted and grew some fantastic radishes and lettuces. They grew really well and we enjoyed eating them!

Trip to the Seaside!

Class 2 had a fabulous day in Filey; they built sandcastles, buried each other in the sand, paddled in the sea and enjoyed a huge ice cream! The sun was shining and everybody had a fantastic time.

Skelton Grange Trip

Class 2 had an amazing trip to Skelton Grange! They enjoyed playing teamwork games, building dens in the woods and  learning about the beautiful flowers. At the end of the day, Class 2 all sat around a campfire - what a fabulous day out!

Class 2 Assembly

Class 2 shared their learning about toys with us in a super assembly. We watched them play marbles, cup and ball, do skipping rhymes and play with dolls from long ago. Well done year 2.

Abbey House Museum

Class 2 had an excellent trip to the Abbey House toy museum as part of our topic on Toys from the Past. We had the chance to handle toys that were over 100 years old - it was fascinating.

Trip to the Seaside!

Even though the sun wasn't shining, Class 2 had a fabulous day at the seaside. We all enjoyed playing on the beach and splashing in the sea - getting soaking wet! Once we had dried off, we all had an ice cream and a sleepy journey home.
