Next week, the children in Year 2 will take part in the end of Key Stage 1 statutory assessment tests knows as SATs.
Year 2 have been busy this week making bug hotels for our allotment. We learnt how to use a hacksaw safely and along with our measuring skills, have begun to cut up lengths of bamboo. More work to do next week.
Our broad beans were in desperate need of being planted out so the Year 2 children were in the allotment today planting and minibeast hunting. We discussed how important minibeasts are and have decided to make bug hotels for the allotment to encourage more to live there.
Ilse, Leslie and Pam, the amazing volunteers from Barlick in Bloom came in today to help the Year 2 children plant seeds and divide plants in preparation for displays this summer. Gisburn Road is proud to support Barnoldswick in Bloom as they do such a fantastic job around the town.
Another photo of Charlie Taylor with Year 2. Mr. Browne tried to get him to hold up Jaden’s Liverpool scarf but he wouldn’t.
This afternoon we had a very special visitor! Burnley FC in the Community brought along Burnley FC player Charlie Taylor for a Q & A session with Year 6 – trying to inspire them and motivate them before they begin their SATS. Charlie then stopped off to surprise Year 2 too for a few quick questions before having a picture taken. Thank you
The children in Year 2 began their science work this half term with a hunt for minibeasts in the school grounds. We managed to find spiders, beetles and a baby slug! All are now safely back in their dens.

Thank you to all the Year 2 parents who helped the children make the best salads in the world on Thursday morning. The children now have all the skills needed and have all promissed to make salads at home this Easter holiday.
Year 2 have been busy planting for our allotment and possibly a plant sale next term.
