Year 2 had a great time at the Walker Art Gallery last week, we looked at lots of modern art and discussed how we create abstract art using different sized shapes, zig zag lines and squiggles. We took some great pieces of work back to school with us and had time to have a quick look around the gallery before lunch.0 Comments
Year 1 had a lovely morning making baubles. We have some very talented artists.
Today, we held our annual Christmas Music Assembly, which is always one of the highlights of the year as we get to showcase the incredible talent we have in St. Patrick’s! Every class performed something special that they had been working on in their music lessons with Mr. Larkin, and we also had wonderful performances from Mr. Wellens’ Y5/6 clarinet group and Y5/6 flute group, Mr. Morgan’s Violin Club and, of course, our fabulous school choir. The quality of the performances this year was outstanding! We are so proud of all our talented pupils.
Take a look at some of the performances from today’s assembly.2 Comments

We have started reading our new book ‘Stick Man’ in Year 2 and after practicing reading through our story map with some great actions, we went on a hunt for Stick Man outdoors. We searched all over for the best ‘Stick Man’ sticks to create his body, arms, legs and super long nose! We love being outdoors exploring our environment and can’t wait to create our very own Stick Men next week.
This afternoon Year 1 stopped what they were doing and enjoyed a good book. First we finished off our class novel, then we had time to read on our own or with a friend. It was great!!!
In Early Years, we have started our new book, Grandad’s Secret Giant. We have learned lots of new vocabulary, discovered an enormous tooth brush and have been making traps to see if we can catch our own giant! The children have been drawing pictures of the giant with huge pencils too!0 Comments
We have been learning all about Remembrance Day this week in Year 2 and have produced some beautiful artwork and pieces of writing as a sign of respect and gratitude to all our fallen soldiers. You should be very proud of yourselves Year 2; what a wonderful tribute.
We have been learning so much through imaginative play this week, using small world outdoors and in construction, talking about the size of the things we use and build. We also had a great time pretending to be dogs, and used lots of positional language taking part in dog agility games!0 Comments
