Preparing for ‘World Book Day.’

Year 2 have had an amazing day! We were extremely lucky to be invited to a beautiful book store in Lindley. We all had the chance to browse the shelves and choose our very own book to take home. We finished the day by listening to one of the books being read aloud to us.

We’ve been getting musical in Year 2! The children have been working hard learning to play the recorder. They watched a video of a live orchestra and discussed the different sections of the band. They then played the recorders, looked at the B note and learnt how this is written on a sheet of music. They even mastered playing a song using this note!


As part of our RE unit, Year 2 went on a visit to Hopwood Lane Mosque. They children learnt lots about the ways that Muslims pray. We were so proud of their impeccable behaviour and thoughtful questions.




As part of our fairy tale unit, we have been learning about The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children were set a challenge today! They had to work as part of a team to design and build a bridge that could hold the weight of all three goats!


We will be testing their bridges at the end of the week.



Year 2 have been taking their learning outdoors, using hoops and themselves to share equally! This was part of our unit of work on division. If you wish to do some extra work with your child at home, we have been learning to divide by 2, 5 and 10.



Ho ho ho! Year 2 had a special visitor today! Luckily, all of the children had all been good!


We all came to school in our pyjamas today to raise money for Children in Need. It was a fantastic day and we all managed to stay awake!



We have been getting very creative this week! As part of Art Week, the children have been looking at different mediums and creating their own masterpieces based on different artists.

Check out their bubble paintings!



Next time you’re in school, keep your eyes peeled for our amazing art displays!


We have been very bossy in English this week! The children have been working really hard to follow and write instructions. All of the children read instructions and used these to decorate their own biscuit. They were delicious!



In science, we have been looking at the importance of hygiene. We used glitter to demonstrate how quickly germs can spread. The children then wrote brilliant stories that had the moral of being hygienic.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________Year 2 are amazing gymnasts. They worked sensibly and safely on lots of different equipment in PE.


This week, we cast a magical spell and turned all of the children into one of the characters from our class book. We had a room full of chefs, all ready to cook for a royal family. The children really got into the role and could talk about the cook’s feelings at different points in the story.

They have started to write diary entries from the cook’s perspective. These will be finished early next week, so we will post some of their amazing finished pieces as soon as possible! Keep your eyes peeled to see some fantastic writing!

Come and cheer on the Year 5 and 6 pupils as they take on St. Joseph’s in the first round of the FC Halifax Town 5-a-side Half Time Cup in front of 2000 fans and the BT Sport cameras! COME ON SIDDAL!


In our music lessons, the children have been using their wonderful voices to entertain us all. We have added a fun twist to a popular song and linked this to our food topic. I am sure you will enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed performing it!



This half term, it is all about food in Year Two! We are looking at why it is important, where it comes from and how it tastes. We would be really interested in the delicious foods that the children are eating at home. Why not create a food diary with your child that they can share with the class?

Year 2 are fantastic mathematicians! They can now count up and down in tens and in twos.

We have been rehearsing a two times table song to accompany our learning. Have a listen here and sing along at home with your child!


Year 2 have been working incredibly hard today! We have been looking at a fantastic book, ‘The Royal Dinner’, and have managed to learn the story off by heart. The children put actions to the words and have created a wonderful performance. Have a look at their hard work by watching the video below. We are all very proud of them!




Year 2 have had a fantastic start to the school year.

The children have come back to school refreshed, full of energy and ready to learn.
