St Catherine's Catholic Primary School

Class 2

March 2021

What a busy return to school!

What a fabulous way to end this fabulous term.... but in our fabulous pjs!

Class 2 were super lucky as Class 4 made them their very own Orienteering Treasure Hunt! It was challenging but a lot of fun... we even got to do it in our pjs!

We have loved learning about Jesus' rising from the dead for us all. We were inspired to create our very own Easter Gardens!

The book fairy left TWO surprises for us...

We have decorated some Easter Egg Cups and beautiful Easter Wreaths. We have had a lot of fun!

We have thought about acts of kindness we can show to others during Lent.

A little bit of golden time...

We have designed Easter Cards remembering that Jesus sacrificed his life for us. We hope you like them!

We are remembering the sacrifice that Jesus made for us by practising the sign of the cross and wearing a cross on our forehead made from burnt palms.

What a "egg'ellent scone'ishious" morning we have had making Hot Cross Scones! We mixed perfect team work, patience and several ingredients to make our delicious scones!

On the 19th March we celebrated St. Joseph's day. We learned he was a carpenter and used a lot of tools in his daily life. We thought about tools we can use to help our families.

To mark census day we collected data on the number of pedestrians and transport passing school, then represented our data on bar charts.

Class Two have really enjoyed talking about 'The Colour Monster', sharing their feelings and writing fantastic diary entries!

Always time for superb maths...

A little bit of time for Arts, Crafts and Golden Time!

We even squeezed in a few games of Twister..... what fun we had!

We were visited by the Book Fairy!

Amazing Home Learning! Well done!

Class Two had a lovely treat listening to Monika retell the Creation Story and playing Sophie's home-made matching game. Thank you girls!

We have written our worries onto tissue paper and shared them with our peers. We know that sharing our worries helps us to feel better. We then scrunched our worries into a little ball and threw them away.

Research for non-chronological report writing....

We are busy researching non-chronological reports. How many features can you identify?

Always time for some extra Maths...

Hello Class two, Mrs Richardson, checking in with you all, hoping you, your family and friends are all keeping well. I hope some  you had the opportunity to take part in the Virtual Big Sing last Friday afternoon.We had a great time in school, singing/dancing/watching the event. So over on Charanga, I have added the 'Song Package' to your Yumu packagers, so you can carry on enjoying singing. Also, don't forget to check out the Charanga Leader Board every Friday, to see who has had some Charanga fun each week. Happy singing everyone

December: Santa visited Class Two and brought very lovely presents for all the children!

December: After a recent visit to church Class 2 were inspired to create their own stained glass windows, depicting signs and symbols of things important to them. The turned out magnificantly!

December: Year 1 children have become presenters of their very own TV Cookery Show. Today, they presented how to make delicious pancakes and enjoyed the roles of filmer, editor and director! There was even some time to sample the pancakes...!

December: Christmas jumper day!

December: Year one and Year two children visited Penrith library to explore their exciting books and to make their very own Santa face. We even had time for a couple of stories, juice and biscuits!

December: We were kindly visited by policeman Mark who delivered a superb, informative talk about road safety.... helping us to stay safe when near roads.

December: Year one and year two children visited Kendal Brewery to see the brilliantly performance, ‘Inside the Igloo’. What a fantastic time we had.... we had to help collect snowdrops and balance them on our hands during the performance!

November: What fantastic gymnasts we have in year one and two..... the children have shown how bendy, flexible and subtle they are. We’ve also witnessed some fantastic balancing, stretching and paired work!

November: Year 2 really enjoyed spending the morning at Newton Rigg participating in multi-sports.

October: Class 2 had a 'hoot' producing Owl Colleges for their autumnable topic...

October: Class two have presented a beautiful assembly all about space and the creation story to the rest of the school. They worked very hard to learn their lines and actions. The children enjoyed learning, Rocket Man by Elton John and sang it wonderfully. They also planned and made the most amazing rockets using recyclable materials. Well done Class Two.

October: Year two children have been creating their own programs on scratch using algorithms (sequences of instructions). We have learned that you use symbols to represent an action for a sprite to follow. Predicting sequences and debugging algorithms is still quite tricky....... we will keep practising!

Class Two are very excited to welcome back the year two children and welcome the new year one children. We are going to have a superb year.....
