welcome

In Year 2, we aim to ensure your child reaches their full potential and we will give them the support they need to do so. Year 2 is an important year for our children as they become more independent and develop a deeper understanding of who God has called them to be. 

On this page, you will find a range of information regarding your child’s learning, including pictures of activities they have completed. You can also refer to Year 2 Parent Handbook which was given out at the start of the year.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please log it in your child's planner or arrange an appointment through the office.

Juan Diego was born in Mexico.

When he went to Tepeyac Hill, he met Mary standing by the roses. She said that she would like a church built there. Juan Diego picked up the roses and showed them to the Bishop. A church was then built on Tepeyac Hill.

YEAR 2 GALLERY

We look to Jesus as our guide in praying and learning. Here you will see some of the wonderful experiences we have shared together in Year 2.

 

Year 2 have joined together during times of Prayer and Liturgy. We invited our parents to join when we offered our prayers to Mary, Our Lady, to mark the month of October, the month of the Holy Rosary. 

  

 Year 2 enjoyed discussing their feelings and using a variety of equipment to create different faces to show their feelings. 

As part of 'National Poetry Day', Year 2 gathered together in our prayer garden to think about our safe places in this world. 

  

 

During Geography Awareness Week, Year 2 enjoyed planting tulips and discussing different ways of looking after ‘God’s Creation’.

Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed developing their gymnastic skills during our PE lessons.  

As part of our Geography Passport Day, Year 2 visited Australia. They had the opportunity to use some of their senses to complete 'I'm a celebrity...Get me out of here!' challenge.
