Pirate Fun day

Pirate Fun day

Year 2 loved their Pirate Fun Day on Friday. The children came to school dressed as pirates, they showed their pirate ships which they made at home with their families, made pirate treasure maps, enjoyed a pirate playtime, had a pirate picnic and then sang some pirate songs with their families. It really was was a fun day!

 

 

Cress Seeds Investigation

Cress Seeds Investigation

Year 2 have planned and carried out a science investigation to discover where cress seeds will grow best – in a dark cupboard or on the window ledge. The children planted their cress seeds and put them into their locations. The children agreed that both sets of cress seeds should be watered daily. The children are enjoying keeping check each day to see where cress seeds will grow best.

Pentecost Day Collective Worship

Today Year 2 led a very thoughtful collective worship with the theme of ‘Pentecost’. The children began by blessing themselves with warm holy water and thought carefully about how the disciples felt on Pentecost day. Once we listened to the Word the children then wrote a thank you prayer to the Holy Spirit on a small flame. We ended by singing the hymn ‘I will be with you’.

Pirate fun at Hartlepool Quays

Pirate fun at Hartlepool Quays

Year 2 have had a wonderful day at Hartlepool Quays. The children dressed as pirates and visited HMS Trincomalee. The children explored the ship, played some pirate games and then watched a demonstration of some guns being fired. They even had the chance to hold the guns! Everyone had a great day!
