Hello and welcome back to a new school year at Our Lady of Lourdes. My name is Miss Patel and I will be teaching Year 2 with Ms Duncan. We are really excited to have your children in our class and have heaps planned for the academic year.
We are really looking forward to getting to know you and the pupils in the near future.
In Science we got to make food for birds, we put it outside to see how long it would take for the birds to eat it.
We are excited to see which one of ours is eaten first. We used bird seeds, raisins and lard. We had lots of fun making bird food for the birds.
This week in RE, we have been learning about Judaism. We went on a trip to visit the Synagogue. The children had lots of fun looking at Torahs and learning about the content in the Torah. The children learnt the stories were similar to the Bible.
The teachers were impressed with our knowledge about the Synagogue.
We had fun asking some of the staff questions about their roles in the school. They told us what they enjoyed doing the most and why they chose to work in a school.
Everyone said they liked working at Our Lady of Lourdes.
IPC Entry Point
We had fun last week dressing up as what we would want to be older. We dressed as doctors, nurses, lawyers, teachers and many other professions. We really enjoyed dressing up.
In literacy we have been reading a book called Amazing Grace. In the story Grace likes to use her imagination and act out different characters. We enjoyed acting out the different characters pretended to be by Grace. We were doctors, patients, Joan of Arc, pirates, spiders and horses. We loved acting out the different characters Grace played.
