It was International Women’s Day on 8th March so we learned about some of the struggles women have had to overcome to get equality.

We wrote letters

What an exciting day we had on World Book Day in Year 2!

Road Safety

We had such a fun, valuable morning with Andy from Stockport Council who carried out some Road Safety activities with us on Broomfield Drive. We learned about some different crossings and how to cross roads safely in different scenarios, such as at T-junctions and when there are parked cars obstructing our view. We learned to check in parked cars to see if there was

Minibeast hunt

As part of our ongoing work on habitats, we thought about what kind of animals we would find in our forest areas on our school field. We created some tables with names of minibeasts we thought we might find and then set off on a minibeast hunt! The children knew all the right places to look – damp, dark places such as under logs

Florence Nightingale DEAL

DEAL (Drama, Engagement and Active Learning) underpins so much of our learning at St. Mary’s. We become immersed in a book or a situation and carry out lots of drama strategies to further our knowledge and become more engaged, which then has a fantastic impact on our writing! As part of our History work on significant individuals, we learned about how Florence Nightingale changed

Children in Need 2021

Yellow class made such a great effort to support Children in Need this year that we had to take a photo! Everyone dressed in spots or in Pudsey clothes and gave a donation to go to the charity. We started the day by learning a bit about who and how our donations will help and enjoyed a Supermovers with Pudsey bear.


Remembrance

At the beginning of this half term, Year 2 learned a bit about World War 1 to understand the reason behind Remembrance Day each year. To help us understand the conditions in the trenches a little more, we looked at lots of pictures and asked lots of questions. We read about life in the trenches and then immersed ourselves in some drama to help

Class Worship

We have been reading lots of Bible stories as part of our RE topic and thinking about how the stories in it show Christians how we should behave. Today, in Worship, we read The Good Samaritan and discussed how we should always show love and respect to everyone we meet. We laid out our green cloth and said our welcome words as we lit
