Today Y2 visited The Deep in Hull to start off our topic of 'Under the Sea'. We completed a workshop that looked in to whether fish have any 'super powers' to protect themselves in the sea. We even had a look at hissing cockroaches too! Then we went into the deep and had a look at all the different aquariums. We saw lots of different types of fish including sharks, manta rays, sting rays and clown fish. We saw fish of all different sizes too. Some were even bigger than us! Y2 had an amazing day! Their behaviour was impeccable and they were fabulous ambassadors of St. Marie's. Well done to all of Y2 and thank you to the adults who came with us to help!
Y2 were set a challenge! Miss Healy said "If you can all get to Out of this World (on the behaviour chart this is above exceptional) for 3 days running I will send you all to see Mr Fernandes for being fabulous.
On Friday (just before our assembly hence the Italian themed clothes) Y2 not only met the challenge but exceeded it! They had reached 5 days! So we all had to visit Mr F's office! There was plenty of room for us all to fit in!
Well done Y2 - Now on to the next Challenge!
Last week we had a writing workshop where parents came in to work with their children. We practised lots of different writing skills such as expanded noun phrases, conjunctions, exclamations and even managed to fit in a bit of karate punctuation! All of a sudden we recieved an email from Tiddler the fish. He wanted us to re write his adventure story. Of course we had to help him. We worked hard to also include the skills we had practised in the morning and the Mummies and Daddies could help too.
Many thanks to all of the parents who were able to attend.
Please find attached the information from the morning.
