St Gilbert's R.C.

Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.

Year 2

We have been learning to play the recorder. We have learnt the notes B, A and G. We have written our own tunes with these three notes!

In P.E. we have been learning to wrestle!


Once again we invited our parents/carers/grandparents into the classroom to share our learning. 

NSPCC Number Day

We all dressed up for Number Day, to support the NSPCC charity. We played games and did lots of fun number activities. 

We used our paper plate loom to do some weaving.

This week we have been learning about the artist Wassily Kandinsky. The children created concentric circles using primary and secondary colours.

We made a paper loom and practised threading the paper under and over.


This half-term we have been learning how to use scissors with increasing control. 


This half-term we are doing gymnastics. This week we were making 'tuck' shapes on the apparatus.

Design and Technology

The children built a structure out of different materials to resemble the Cenotaph in Eccles town centre.  They practised cutting, sticking and constructing their sculpture.


We had fun making 2D shapes on the geoboards.

Odd Socks Day

We wore odd socks to mark the beginning of Anti-Bullying Week. This is a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique.

On ‘Showcase’ morning, we shared what we have been learning with our parents. They asked us lots of questions and were very impressed. 

We went on a trip to Staircase House to re-enact the events of The Great Fire of London. 



The children worked really hard creating their clay relief tiles. Well done everyone!

The children designed their own house from the Great Fire of London time period and used clay to make a tile. They used different tools and techniques to make their sculpture.

As part of our R.E. (Caritas unit), we talked about our school community and how we welcome new members. We made welcome cards for the nursery children who have just joined our school community. We went to the nursery to give the cards to the children.  

Our science topic is ‘materials.’ We went outside to discover the materials used in our outside environment. We found lots of materials and we talked about why certain materials are used for different things. We also had great fun, especially in the EYFS playground! We had an extra play there as a 100% attendance reward!

We are learning to play the recorder.
