Welcome to St Peter's Year 2 class page.
Our names are Miss Lightfoot (Y2 teacher) and Mrs Eaton (our class teaching assistant). We work together as a team to make sure every day in school is as enjoyable for the Year 2 children as we can possibly make it. We will also be doing lots of fun sports lessons with Mr Lord and music with Mrs Reynolds.
We are looking forward to getting to know your children and watching their development this year. You can see below our end of year expectations for your children. Please keep a close watch on this page for new photographs and snap-shots of your children's wonderful work and learning!
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Lightfoot and Mrs Eaton.
In music, we have been learning all about how to make different sounds with a variety of percussion and vocals. We have been creating music for our theme: 'The Hairy, Scary Castle'! Here are some photographs of us enjoying making music!
WORLD POETRY MONTH.....VISIT FROM A FAMOUS POET!
October is world poetry month. To celebrate, we invited a published poet - Andy Tooze - to visit our school. We spent the day learning lots of fun poems. Our KS2 children even wrote their own poems! At the end of the day, we had an assembly to celebrate and share all of the amazing work that we had created. This day has also inspired us to learn some class poems to recite as a whole class after the half term.
IN NOVEMBER, WE REMEMBER
The children in Year 2 and Year 6 visited the Middleton Cenotaph on Friday 10th November. We wrote bidding prayers and a short service together, then walked to the cenotaph to pay our respects and share our prayers with the public. We handed out booklets with our prayers to visitors and sang hymns to remember the solders who died. We wrote prayers and made our own poppy wreath to leave at the cenotaph, so that others could share our prayers too.
We came into school dressed as what we aspire to be when we get older. Father Kieran came into school to talk to us about his calling as a Priest. We were also lucky enough to have a visit from the organist from Salford diocese! He spoke to us about how he became an organist and why it is so important to him. He even brought some organ pipes with him and taught us the difference between low and high notes! We had a brilliant day!
