Fishy Fun at The Deep with Y2

Today Y2 visited The Deep in Hull to start off our topic of 'Under the Sea'. We completed a workshop that looked in to whether fish have any 'super powers' to protect themselves in the sea. We even had a look at hissing cockroaches too! Then we went into the deep and had a look at all the different aquariums. We saw lots of different types of fish including sharks, manta rays, sting rays and clown fish. We saw fish of all different sizes too. Some were even bigger than us! Y2 had an amazing day! Their behaviour was impeccable and they were fabulous ambassadors of St. Marie's. Well done to all of Y2 and thank you to the adults who came with us to help!

Y2 are out of this World!!

Y2 were set a challenge! Miss Healy said "If you can all get to Out of this World (on the behaviour chart this is above exceptional) for 3 days running I will send you all to see Mr Fernandes for being fabulous.

On Friday (just before our assembly hence the Italian themed clothes) Y2 not only met the challenge but exceeded it! They had reached 5 days! So we all had to visit Mr F's office! There was plenty of room for us all to fit in!

Well done Y2 - Now on to the next Challenge!

Terrific Teamwork!

Yesterday some Y2's attended a Sports day at EISS. They worked as a great team showing off their running, jumping and throwing skills. Most of all they showed great sportsman ship and we had lots of fun.

Well done!

Y2 Writing Workshop

Last week we had a writing workshop where parents came in to work with their children. We practised lots of different writing skills such as expanded noun phrases, conjunctions, exclamations and even managed to fit in a bit of karate punctuation! All of a sudden we recieved an email from Tiddler the fish. He wanted us to re write his adventure story. Of course we had to help him. We worked hard to also include the skills we had practised in the morning and the Mummies and Daddies could help too.

Many thanks to all of the parents who were able to attend.

Please find attached the information from the morning.

Y2 Maths Workshop

Today Y2 had a maths workshop where we invited parents and adults to come and join us. We all worked together and looked at the different methods we use in Y2 to solve equations. We practised our addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and fractions. We even managed to fit in some singing of timestables with the help of Percy Parker. The children worked hard througout the morning and showed the adults in the room what maths masters they are! Well done to Y2 and many thanks to all the parents who were able to attend. The hand out from the morning is attached. 

Exciting Explosions in Y2

On Friday 16th February, after lots of research into the volcanoes of Italy, we decided to make and explode some of our own. It was great to have some Y5 helpers too. We made the volcanoes out of paper, a plastic cup and selotape. We then used bicarbonate of Soda and Vinegar to make them erupt. Y2 have learned so much about volcanoes that they were able to talk about whether people had made a composite volcano, shield volcano or cinder cone volano. We then thought about which volcano they were like when they erupted. Was it an explosion like Stromboli where the lava only flows down one side? Or was it more like Vesuvius where it erupted on all sides. Y5 then made us think a little more scientifically and we held a science experiment to find out if it made a difference by using more or less bicarbonate of Soda. 

Well done Y2 and Y5 for a great afternoons work.
