Year 1 & 2

Welcome to the Year 1 & 2 Page!

Class 2 have become very interested in the seasons recently, most particularly Autumn. As a class we have been collecting lots of items to do with autumn, especially conkers. We were challenged to make pictures out of the conkers and this is what we created.

We used collage to make a picture for our class topic work. Our artwork shows what happens to a tree through-out the seasons.

As part of our work in R.E. looking at What makes a place special? Class 2 had a walk to visit the Methodist Chapel in Bolton.

Our visit to the Methodist Chapel in Bolton

4th June 2014 Class 2 visited the Yorkshire Arboretum. Although it was a very rainy day everyone had a great time minibeast hunting, habitat building and pond dipping.

Although it was a very rainy day Class 2 had a great time at the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard.

We were met by Kathryn and Linda, staff from the Arboretum, and they helped us with the activities. The day began by looking for minibeasts under leaves and logs. The children found a variety of species such as woodlice, slugs, snails, worms and even a toad! We then built our own habitats for them.

At lunchtime we ate in the outdoor classroom, sitting on tree stump seats. The tarpaulin cover meant we were all dry!

After lunch Kathryn and Linda helped us with the pond dipping activity, which was great fun!

 

Quotes from the children:

 

"This is the best day of my life, even though it's raining!"

 

"I'm having a great day."

 

"I've been looking forward to pond dipping all week!"

 

Quote from the Arboretum staff:

 

"What exceptionally well behaved, polite children at St. Martin's."

23rd May 2014 Today we released our butterflies into our school quiet area. They were named: Billy, Bob, Betsy, Benjamin, Brian, Benny, Bethany, Benjie, Ben and Flutter! They were reluctant to leave us but we are sure they will enjoy their freedom!

20th May 2014 Great excitement in Class 2 this morning! After watching and waiting for over 2 weeks our butterflies have begun to emerge from their chrysalis!
