Hello Year 2
Miss Moran is your class teacher and we are lucky to have Dr Mishra, Miss Steipen and Miss Roberts working with us.
Welcome to our class page. We’re excited to inform what the class will be learning this half term, as well as showing you all the fun we are having on their learning journey.
This term's value and virtues are attentive and discerning.
Pupils in a Jesuit school are growing to be attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices
Our class saint is St George.
Thank you for all your support
This term the children are learning about the Old Testament and the different people like God who lead the way before Jesus.
We are focusing on the following prayers in Year 2. Please support your child in praying them at home.
Building the Kingdom
We are very proud to be a part of the Building the Kingdom programme, the aim of which is to embed distinctive Catholic Curriculum design for the transformation of society. As said on their website, ‘through the National School of Formation, a dynamic and challenging approach to teaching and learning in a Catholic School has been developed. This initiative calls for the contextualising of all learning within the beliefs and values of the Gospel and the Catholic tradition, aspiring to reach the highest possible levels of learning. We call it Building the Kingdom…’
Through Building the Kingdom, we explore the big questions of purpose and meaning that arise throughout the Liturgical year, and then create lessons and events which engage students with the skills needed to be agents for a Spirit fuelled transformation of society.
You will find this terms plan for Building the Kingdom at the bottom of the page.
Through our curriculum work this term we will be focusing on
