16/12/2020 - Christmas Party
14/12/2020 - Decorating Christmas Biscuits
Today we decorated gingerbread jumpers/men for christmas! We had planned to make these, but found it much more covid friendly to decorate a biscuit each!
11/12/2020 - Christmas Jumper Day
08/12/2020 - Science Afternoon
This afternoon we investigated what happens to raisins if they are dropped in different liquids. We did this using raisins, still water and sparkling water. We filled up one cup with still water, another with sparkling, and then we dropped raisins into each to see what happened. We found that they sank to the bottom in still water and rose to the top in the sparkling water! This was because the raisins became trapped in the bubbles of the water thus rising them to the top!
30/11/2020 - Spirituality Day - Advent
For Spirituality Day, we looked at advent. We started the day with an agape worship which Mr Beauford led. We look at what advent means and created our own 'acts of kindness' advent calendar for the class. We will pick out a new 'act of kindness' for each day in December. We created paper chains wreaths and then ended the day by making our own tissue paper advent wreaths.
11/11/2020 - Remembrance Day
The children wrote some prayers about remembrance day and made a poppy each. Each of us went down to the labyrinth to lay a poppy in the ground. It looked beautiful!
22/10/2020 - Harvesting our vegetables
At the beginning of the half term, we planted our own beans. Today, we harvested them and gave them a try!
21/10/2020 - Science Investigation Afternoon
For this half term's science investigation, we investigated the effect that different water temperatures can have on skittles. We used both hot and cold water for this, and made a prediction of what we thought would happen. In groups we then carried out the experiment and came to a conclusion. This allowed us to compare results with each other and see if our predictions were true or false!
20/10/2020 - Stone Age Necklaces
The children researched, designed and made their own stone age necklaces out of clay. The clay bead were shaped into 3D shapes, such as spheres, cones, cubes and pyramids.
13/10/2020 - Ada Lovelace Day
For this special day, we learnt about Ada Lovelace who was a British mathematician. Ada was described as being the world's first computer programmer. The children found it interesting that Ada was interested in flying and created her own wings out of different materials. The classes both had a go at designing their own flying machine. They had great fun discussing their ideas and putting it into their own work.
02/10/2020 - Harvest
In class, we looked at what Harvest means. The children decorated a leaf for our class Harvest wreath. The children also create their own acrostic Harvest poems.
08/09/2020 - First Week Back
The children settled in well in both Class 7 and 8. We enjoyed lots of activities in the first week such as transition activities and pointillism art. The children used pointillism art to create their own piece of work which displayed on the wall of wonder in the classrooms.
Although this is a difficult time for us all, we are enjoying seeing what you are all getting up to at home! We are immensely proud of you all for working so hard at home and enjoying yourselves with a range of activities! Thank you to everyone who has sent us your pictures! Keep it up!
A beautiful poem written by Oliver in Class 6 and his Mum.

13/03/2020 - Sport Relief Day!
On Friday we had a brilliant day dressed up as a Sports person. We were so impressed with the range of sports people the children dressed up as! The children had the opportunity to talk about their sport they are passionate about and share their skills with the class. As a whole school, we were set the challenge to run 100 miles altogether! Year 2 did incredibly well. Class 5 ran around Tom's track 319 times which is equivalent to 53 miles! Class 6 ran around Tom's track 290 times which is equivalent to 48 miles! Year 2 alone ran 101 miles! Well done Year 2!
06/03/2020 - World book day!
Holy Trinity celebrated World book day today! We had a brilliant day dressed up as a book character! We took part in a World book day quiz, created our own front covers for our own book and we had a picture with the whole of Key Stage 1! A huge thank you to all the parents and carers for providing such wonderful costumes!
26/02/2020 - Class 6's INSPIRE
On Thursday, Class 6 had their INSPIRE morning. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and loved having thier parents and special adults there to support their learning! Thank you to everybody who attended and we hope you enjoyed yourselves too!
25/02/2020 - Class 5's INSPIRE
On Wednesday, Class 5 had their INSPIRE morning. It was wonderful to see so many parents, carers and other special adults come to support their child's learning. We had a fabulous morning! Firstly, we learned how to use highlighters to help us to answer comprehension questions. Then we used money coins to make given amounts. Finally, each child created a bridge using everday materials as part of our topic learning. We were blown away by the quality of the bridges that were made and we would like to thank all the adults who provided the children with resources and ideas!
04/02/2020 - Class 5 sign language!
In Class 5 we have been very busy and we have been learning sign language! We are learning why sign language is an important life skill and we have learned how to sign our names, basic manners and we have learned how to sign a George Ezra song! The children enjoy signing so much that we learn new songs every week!
20/12/2019 Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas everybody!
Year 2 have been super busy this week enjoying lots of Christmas activities! We made our own Christmas ornaments, made our own gingerbread men, created our own Christingle and explored how Christians celebrate Christmas. We also enjoyed our Christmas jumper day and carol singing to our parents and carers!
The Year 2 team would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Thank you for your lovely cards and gifts. We hope you all enjoy a well deserved two week holiday and we will see you in January!

09/12/2019 & 12/12/2019 Year 2 Nativity!
Year 2 have been very busy this week performing our show-stopping nativity 'A Midwife Crisis'! All the hard work paid off on the day and the children performed amazingly well! A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who provided costumes for us. Miss Davis, Miss Entwistle and the Year 2 team feel very proud of every single one of you! It wasn't a crisis after all...
05/11/2019 Remember, remember the 5th of November!
Year 2 have had a very busy day today taking part in activities to remember a very special day! Class 5 and 6 created firework displays, created chocolate sparklers and enjoyed a cup of warm hot chocolate outside. Year 2 are going to be learning all about the Gunpowder plot in their topic and literacy lessons so this was a lovely way to kick-start our learning.
21/10/2019 Spirituality day
On Monday, the whole school focused on our Spirituality Day. The theme for the day was 'being responsible for our world'. Year 2 had a big discussion about our world and if we are being truly responsible for it. We explored the creation story in the book of Genesis. For the rest of the day, we learned lots about plastic pollution and the issues that our planet is currently facing. We learned about the 3 R's; recycle, re-use and reduce and we then created posters to raise awareness about this. We also thought of ideas of how we could reduce using plastic and how other people or businesses could do this also. We then created a class fish out of recycled plastic bottles for our display in our classroom.
In Year 2 we are learning about Healthy Living. We have looked at the different foods we should eat and the importance of a balanced diet. We are learning the importance of keeping clean and had a special visitor come in. A local dentist showed us how to look after our teeth. The importance of how and when to clean your teeth... not forgetting the flossing!
To see the consequences of when you don’t look after your teeth we did an egg experiment. We put an egg in three types of different liquids: coke, milk, lemonade and water. This helped us see what can happen to our teeth if we drink some of these drinks too often and not brush our teeth. We loved seeing the results of our experiment. A lesson to us all - the importance of drinking water!
