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 The birth of the church

We will learn that when the apostles received the Holy Spirit they spread the Good News. We will reflect on how we can spread the Good News. We will learn about the early Christian community and understand that the Christian community continues today to live by Baptism, the Eucharist and its mission to love God by loving our neighbour.


At Home

You could help your child by:

  • talking about the symbols of the Holy Spirit and how the Spirit helps us

You persevere and you are resilient when:
