St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Year 2 - St Christopher's Class

Class Teacher: Miss Hargrove

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Adamek, Mrs Watkins and Mrs Tumber

Saint Christopher's name means "Christ-bearer". His story tells that he carried a child, who was unknown to him, across a river before the child revealed himself as Christ. He is therefore, the patron saint of travellers. Year 2 will learn that on our journeys in life, we can rely on God and the prayers of the saints.

St Christopher ... Pray for Us.

Spread some joy! Create your own rainbow artwork.

20 minutes of reading

Wednesday 1st April 2020

Good morning everyone!

I am missing you all so much but I am glad you are all staying safe at home. Thank you to those children who have gotten in touch. I have put some of your wonderful work below.

Keep working on your packs; I am looking forward to seeing some awesome writing when we get back to school!

I have also put some more tasks onto this page for those who would like to have a go. Please work through these at your own time and pace.

Don't forget you can email me to let me know all the activities you have been doing - (Just put Year 2 as the subject heading)

Please know that I am thinking of you and that I am here for every single one of you. I am very proud of you and proud to be your class teacher :)

Keep Smiling,

From Miss Hargrove

 P.S. Ironman has been up to mischief! Have a look below at what he has been doing in school while you are at home. Try to keep a log of his adventures.  New photos added daily!

Please remember to put the date and a heading (which subject you are doing) for each piece of work. 

Then when school re-opens I can see what you did and when. Thank you!

Remember: Please email if you have any questions about work or wish to share any work you have done.

Work From Home

Thank you to all these children (and parents) for letting me know how they are getting on. Keep up the excellent work!

Below are some more tasks you could have a go at. 

These are all on-going activities. Please work through them at your own time and pace.

Opportunities for learning at home: It may be useful to practise some of the assessment booklets/SATs papers in order to revise the content taught in Reading, Mathematics, Spelling and Grammar in Year 2.

All previous papers and materials are available to download via the link below. Scroll down for the KS1 past papers. 

If you are self-isolating or in the event of a school closure, please see the pack below for activities for your child to do at home. The school recommends that Year Two children should spend  half an hour of English and half an hour of Maths daily, but you may want to consider more. A reading session should be in addition to this.  Please see the curriculum information, for the other topics they will be studying. Daily practise of their phonics and Year Two spelling words would be very useful.
