Class Worship: Tuesday 20th February 2024

We had a very calm Worship this afternoon in class.  We read the story of how Jesus Calmed the Storm and thought about how when our life gets really busy, we can think about our faith and remember that Jesus is always there to help us.  Some of us read our prayers from our Prayer Books which we had written in our own time which was very thoughtful.


The Start of Lent: Monday 19th February 2024

Today we prepared our classroom for Lent.  We changed our prayer cloth to purple and watched a short video clip about '40' to help us understand that Jesus spent 40 days and nights in the desert.  After this we then wrote our own Lenten Promises.

Tell people they have made you happy.

Class Worship: Tuesday 12th December 2023

As part of our Class Worship today, we lit the second candle of our Advent Wreath.  We spoke about how the second candle means Peace and what this means for us.  It was nice to have some quiet reflective time when we are so busy.

Virtues Day

Today in Year 2 we have been learning about the virtue love and charity and what it means to show love to one another.
Mrs Walsh gave us all some love heart stickers to give to people and share something kind about what we love about them.

Mrs Walsh - “How does that make you feel?”

Mikolaj - “I feel special”

Charlotte- “I feel thankful”

Julia - “ I feel happy and surprised”

We then designed our own love hearts and wrote what we can do to show love. We shared these with the school in our assembly.

“ This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” ( John 15:9)
