KS1s Outdoor Friday!

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

For the second week running Outdoor Friday has proved a success for Key Stage 1! We've spent an enjoyable hour exploring all the activities on the field, playground and in Year 1s outdoor area. We made oceans in bottles, decorative foil fish, went on a bug hunt, challenged ourselves in obstacle races and parachute games and enjoyed lots of other activities. What shall we do outside next week?

We have loved using chalk this half term to create soft tones and textures on a background of black paper. 

We think our polar bears show such character and our penguin chicks are just adorable!


Winter Wonderland

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

We hosted our annual Winter Wonderland this evening. Our creative children and the friends of our school produced some amazing merchandise to sell.

Thank you to everyone who could spare some time to support our children's creativity.

 


Ash Wednesday

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

Children in Year 2 learned about the meaning of Ash Wednesday including the symbolism of the ashes and the cross.  Mrs Waller held a small liturgy in the classroom where children were invited to accept the administration of a cross on their forehead using the ashes brought back from church by our KS2 children.  They shared ideas about how to be the best version of themselves and thought about the struggles that Jesus had endured during His 40 days and nights in the desert.


Y2's Gospel Assembly: Be a light in the darkness

Year 2 (Year 2) on: Year 2's Blog

Year 2 are really proud of themselves after presenting their Gospel to the school and their parents.

We have placed the lamp up high in our RE display so that it continues to remind us all that we should try to shine our light for all to see.  The children are highly praised for displaying acts of goodness during the school day, whether it be helping each other to tidy up and organise themselves in the classroom, or by being kind to others at play-times.

Miss Dyson and Mrs Waller thank all parents for turning up and showing their support.  It really means a lot to the children to see so many familiar faces encouraging them.  We thank all children who who bravely stood up and performed their lines and sung to the audience.

Well done Year 2!


Walking in a Winter Wonderland

OLSJ hosted our annual Winter Wonderland with the help of our fantastic PTA. The event celebrates our children's creativity, as products they have made themselves are sold.

The attendance was fantastic and there were smiles all round. Some children even reported a Santa sighting! Thank you to everyone who organised and attended to make the evening such a magical occasion!
