Hope you are all well. Here is a Home Learning Pack with ideas on what to do at home for the next couple of weeks if you would like to. Remember though, the most important thing is to stay calm, relaxed and keep smiling. We will keep updating you with more fun ideas over the coming weeks. Much love!

Year 2 have been learning all about microhabitats during our Science lessons this week so we decided to go outside and discover all the microhabitats in our school grounds. We investigated what insects and minibeasts lived in the soil, grass and on the flowers. Science is fascinating!0 Comments
Year 2 attended the Epiphany Service at the Metropolitan Cathedral last Friday. We sang well known Christmas Hymns and three members of our class dressed up as the Three Kings. Year 2 were wonderfully behaved, as usual, and represented our school so well.0 Comments
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
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.
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.
In music lessons recently, following on from Black History Week last month, Year 2 have been learning a traditional, spiritual American song called Wade in the Water. It was first recorded in 1901 and has been covered lots of times since, even becoming associated with the civil rights movement in the U.S. in the 1960s. Year 2 recorded their own version in today’s music lesson; have a listen and let us know what you think!0 Comments
Here are a few photographs of the amazing maths work we have been doing this half term. We’ve estimated how many giant steps it takes to get from one side of the playground to the other, worked out how many tens and ones are in two digit numbers, ordered numbers to a hundred, practiced our number bonds, counted in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s from different numbers and much more. Year 2 have worked so hard since starting in September and they have learnt so many new skills already. We can’t wait for next term!0 Comments
