Outdoor learning- making ‘God’s eyes
Year 2 really enjoyed making god’s eyes this week. We wound wool around lolly sticks to form beautiful patterns. The children concentrated really well to ensure that they produced their neatest work. Here are some examples….
The children thoroughly enjoyed Green Day. They took part in a carousel of activities which included pond dipping, identification of wild flowers, planting in the African garden and creating art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. We also learned about endangered animals and how we can be responsible stewards of our world. The children demonstrated a great knowledge about the natural world and a passion for looking after the animals and plants within it. We discussed what we could do at school to help save resources and we have made recycling boxes for paper and pens.
Class 2B took part in a session aimed at ensuring that the children can scoot safely and are in control of their scooters and develop an awareness of what’s around them when they are scooting. Despite the wet weather the children had great fun. Class 2T will have their session next Thursday .
The Feast of St Alban
In the Catholic Church we celebrate the Feast of St. Alban on the 20th June. The children enjoyed celebrating St. Albans Feast on Friday. We learnt about St. Alban’s story and wrote a prayer to thank God for this kind and courageous man who was the first English saint. We were fortunate enough to join the mass on a live feed from St. Alban and St. Stephen’s church to celebrate this special day. We also drew pictures of St. Alban and rounded off the day with an ice lolly.
