St Mary's RC Primary School

Full of grace, we grow and learn together

Hey gorgeous children!

It was so lovely to speak to some of you last week.

We are glad you are ok and we are missing you all :(

Here is some activities for you to try over the next 2 weeks!

Send me any examples of your work or just message me to say hello!

Our email address is:-year2@st-marysrc.stockport.sch.uk

 

Ascension Thursday

This Thursday is Ascension Day which is 40 days after The Resurrection, when Jesus rose from the dead.

 

On Ascension Day we remember when Jesus went back up to heaven.

 

Please watch the film below and then have a go at drawing a picture of Jesus going up to heaven among the clouds.

You could then take a photo of your picture and send it to me at our class email address:

year2@st-marysrc.stockport.sch.uk

I look forward to seeing your pictures.

I hope you and your families are keeping well. 

Love 

Mrs Saunders

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a lovely time at Easter with your families. 

Here is some work to do for the next 3 weeks while we are not at home.

As it is the start of a new term the question we are asking is " How do we use the technology of God's world wisely?"

In Science we are looking at Materials; In History we are looking at changes in living memory, especially with toys and houses; We are also finding out who Tim Berners-Lee is! In Geography we will be comparing Stockport to other places. 

Remember all these topics will be covered over the next term - NOT in the next 3 weeks :)

There will also be 2dos on PurpleMash - thank you to all who have completed some tasks! If you can't log on or are struggling please email me at year2@st-marysrc.stockport.sch.uk I love to see and hear  what you are doing at home.

Issac was peeling potatoes and Benjamin was learning the order of the planets in both English and Polish!!!

Fab work boys.

 

Take care. Miss you all

                                                 Holy Week                                                                  

 

 

In school this week, we would have been taking the children through the events of Holy Week from today which is Palm Sunday up to the events of the Last Supper and Good Friday.

 

Here are some resources which you may find useful if you want to talk to your children about this most special week as we approach Easter Sunday.

 

Holy Week in Two Minutes

https://bustedhalo.com/video/holy-week-in-two-minutes

This video explains the events of Holy Week quite simply for our children.

 

Can we remind you of our Home Learning activity linked to this:

Produce a poster or double page spread about the events of Holy Week.

Think about how you can present your work creatively using words and pictures to show the events which happened in the week before Easter Sunday.

"Crosses of Hope"

The cross is not seen as the end of the story but a sign of the future and a sign of hope.

 

Design a cross which is bright and colourful. It may have prayers or words of hope on.

                                                                                                   

 

If children do design crosses, please send them to the class emails.

We would love to see pictures of them and we could share them on the school website.

 

 

Let us pray:

Jesus, 

May we feel the comfort of your love for us.

May we share that love with others

with the same generosity and gentle loving kindness 

that you showed to all.

Amen

 

 

                                     

Some great child-friendly news websites that include info on how to spot fake news - ideal for all the news at the moment!

Welcome to Year 2

We are pleased to have settled into Year 2 now - it is always very busy!

Tuesday 1st October

We visited the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, to learn how colour is linked to our emotions. We learnt different techniques to help improve our drawing skills.

 

Look at our aspiring artists at work!

 

Resident artist Luke helped us work on our drawing skills.

 

 

 

 

Year 2 Common Exception Words

Common Exception words are words which don't follow the usual spelling rules. We teach the children these exceptions as lots of them are used often when writing and reading.

Please practice reading and spelling these words with your child as they will help them improve their writing and reading. (We have also included the Year 1 words to revisit.)

 

 

Year 2 Spring Curriculum

Our question is "How do we care for the animals in God's world?"

 

We have been reading Meerkat Mail and making lots of information fact files for our non-fiction study.

Ask your child to tell you an interesting fact!
