Year 2

Video Adverts

Year 2 have been busy making some video adverts for Newcastle Airport. The adverts are to attract visitors to the north east to visit some of our fabulous landmarks.

The children used ‘Photostory’ to make the video and were able to import images, add text and add music. The videos are fantastic!

Take a look at Freddie and Elizabeth’s advert …

Here is Max and Ellie’s video …

Music Workshop

Music Workshop

Key Stage 1 thoroughly enjoyed their samba music workshop this week. They had the opportunity to listen to some samba music and play some of the instruments too.

Everyone had lots of fun!

Saying Sorry

Saying Sorry

This week Year 2 have planned and led their own collective worship with the theme ‘saying sorry’. The children thought about times they have sinned. They thought about sins that they ‘think’, ‘say’ and do.

The children were invited to drop a pebble into some water, as they did this they said sorry to God.

Pentecost Parade!

On Monday afternoon, the whole school took part in a special liturgy to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. Everyone assembled in the hall  to hear the story of Pentecost and to think about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-control) and how we use those gifts for the good of others. After that the children processed out to the field waving or wearing their flames and streamers which they had made in class to represent the power of the Holy Spirit. The liturgy continued outside with prayer and ended with a hymn.

 

Cress Seeds – Light or Dark?

Year 2 planned a science investigation this week to discover whether cress seeds grow in the light or in the dark. The children planted cress seeds and some of these were placed on the window sill in the light, others were placed in a dark cupboard. Over the next couple of days the children will check the cress to see where the cress grows best – in the light or in the dark.
