Welcome to the Year 2 Learning Page!

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

Mrs McVeigh will be teaching you on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons





Our focus for this half term is Eastertide


We will learn that Jesus rose from the dead and still lives with us. We will learn that Jesus told his disciples that he would go back to Heaven but promised that the Holy Spirit would come.  We will learn that Jesus ascended into Heaven and promised to return again and that this gives us hope. We will also know the story of the coming of the Holy Spirit on the apostles at Pentecost and know that the Holy Spirit is promised to us.


At Home

You could help your children by:

  • talking about how the Holy Spirit helps us
  • having a close look at the Paschal (Easter) Candle when at Mass



We are reflecting on the Virtue of  


I show forgiveness  when

You give someone another chance after they have done something wrong so they can make a new start.

You let go of your feelings of sadness and anger 

You show your love for the person rather than focusing on the wrong. 

Leader in me!

We are working on the first habit- Be proactive .  Look for opportunities to listen carefully to others today.
