Welcome to Year 2!
Our teachers are Mrs Higgens, Mrs Nish, Mrs Collins, Mrs Barcoe, Miss Rowland, Miss Francis and Mrs Sutton.
We have been fortunate this week to have one of the artists from Manchester's Whitworth Art Gallery spend some time in our class. We have been looking at the art work of Vincent Van Gogh to inspire us. Alan brought along his printing press and he taught us how to create some wonderful landscape prints using wall paper to create texture. We also looked at Van Gogh's famous 'Sunflowers' painting and we painted a version of our own. We have some extremely talented pupils in Year 2- take a look at their amazing work!
WORLD CUP FEVER!
We have been celebrating World Cup 2018 by holding our very own football tournaments. Mr McGuinness and Miss Nolan were our referees for the morning and we had great fun and showed amazing team spirit, supporting each other and showcasing our skills. Christ the King certainly have talent on the football field! We can't wait for the finals over the next few weeks!
Go Wild on Safari!
Year 2 went on their school trip to Knowsley Safari Park. It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day and we had a great time exploring and getting up close to the animals. We really enjoyed our picnic lunch too!
Come, Holy Spirit...
We have been learning about Pentecost day when the Holy Spirit came to the apostles. We performed a poem in assembly to tell all the children what happened and we talked about the special gifts that the apostles received.
Meet our Flying Friends !
We have had an exciting week in Year 2 to end our half term. We had a visitor from Cheshire Bat Group who gave a really interesting talk about bats and other British mammals. We also had a visit from our regular friends from Stockley Birds of Prey who spent the morning flapping around our Sports Hall. We learnt lots of interesting facts to help us with our Science. It was a fabulous experience getting to hold the beautiful birds. A BIG THANK YOU to all our visitors!
Our Visit to Christ the King Church
We walked to church on a rainy Friday afternoon to meet Father Denneny. Father helped us with our Religion topic - 'Eucharist' by showing us all the things he uses during Mass. We learnt lots of new vocabulary and it was really interesting talking with Father Denneny.
