We hope your journey through our website will help you see what they mean!

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Mrs Slack is our Teacher and Mrs Michaels is our Teaching Assistant.  

On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons Mrs McVeigh teaches us.

Next half term....     

RE     

Mysteries

We will learn about and reflect on mysteries. We will be encouraged to say and reflect on what they wonder about. We will learn that there are three persons in one God and that we can experience God in three different ways as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

We will learn about and reflect on God’s choice of Mary and Joseph and know that Jesus is God’s gift to the whole world.

 

At home
You could help your children by:

  • reminding them, as they make the sign of the cross, that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • reading the Christmas story and encourage them to ask questions
  • visit www.tere.org/interactive_site/KS1link.htm and complete activities.

Year 2 really enjoyed using drama as part of their RE lesson acting out the story of Moses.
