About Year 2HG:
Year 2 - Eastertide
“It is the Holy Spirit who forms and guides God’s people to know God and enter into communion with God through Jesus Christ.”
Year 2 will learn that Jesus rose from the dead and still lives with us. They will learn that Jesus told his disciples that he would go back to Heaven but promised that the Holy Spirit would come. They will learn that Jesus ascended into Heaven and promised to return again and that this gives us hope. They 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.
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
Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.
Please label all clothing and belongings.
Physical Education (PE)
Our P.E day is Tuesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Tuesday wearing their P.E Kit. School uniform for P.E is a white t-shirt, black or navy-blue shorts and black pumps or trainers. Your child may require something warmer to wear if the weather is colder. This could include black or navy-blue jogging trousers, a sweatshirt and trainers. Please ensure that all items of kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name. For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.
Homework will generally be sent out on Friday and returned by the following Thursday. We will send out paper copies and add it to Google Classroom as well. Homework is used to consolidate your child’s learning from that week. Please support your child with their homework where needed.
Children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and associated division facts by the end of year 2. Please ensure that your children access Times Tables Rock Stars to keep their skills sharp.
The children will bring home a new reading book every Friday in their book bag. Please bring your child's book bag in on a Monday so the books can be isolated for 72 hours. Please listen to your child read out loud and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.
Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 1/2 spellings by the end of the year. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home.
