Week beginning 30.3.20
Hello to all of the lovely children in Year 2!
Thank you to all of you who have been continuing your learning at home. I hope you have
enjoyed completing some of the challenges I have set for you! I log on to Purple
Mash every day so I can see how you are getting along with those activities. Please leave me a message if there is anything you are struggling with.
To make it easier for you at home, I have changed the way I upload daily activities on this page.
Click below to go to Padlet, which will have new activities for you to do each day.
I will also write a poem of the week below. Why not try and learn them off by heart?
Keep smiling everyone.
Mrs McElwee :)

Poem of the week
Let's start with a familiar one...
If you should meet a crocodile,
Don't take a stick and poke him.
Ignore the welcome in his smile,
Be careful not to stroke him.
For as he sleeps upon the Nile,
He thinner gets and thinner...
And when you meet a crocodile
He's ready for his DINNER!
1950s Wow Day
We have loved learning about the Queen and what happened on her Coronation Day. We had our own street party to celebrate like they did in 1953! We enjoyed dancing to some tunes from the 1950s. We have some great dancers in our class! The Queen herself even made an appearance!
Year 2 go to the Lowry Centre
We have been learning about the local famous artist L.S. Lowry, so we took a trip to the Lowry Centre in Salford to see some of his paintings! We also met an artist who taught us how to draw animals landscapes in the style of L.S. Lowry. We had an amazing time!
In Autumn 1, Year 2 visited Blackpool. We had a brilliant time! We visited the Sealife Centre to learn about habitats and food chains. We saw sharks, stingrays and all sort of beautiful, amazing sea creatures! After that, we visited Blackpool Tower. We were lucky enough to eat our lunch on the balcony in the Ballroom while the dancers entertained us! Then we went to the very top of Blackpool Tower! We were all very brave and ventured onto the glass floor!
Pirate WOW Day
We had fun making our own treasure maps, learning a pirate dance and dressing up as pirates. We also recieved a mysterious message in a bottle which took us on a treasure hunt around school. We escaped a poisonous spider and made Captain Blackbeard walk the plank. Eventually, we found a treasure chest in the Wild Area full of wondrous treasures! We even got to share some of the booty!
