Good Morning Year 2,
Welcome back to the last term of the school year! We hope you had a fantastic half term and enjoyed the wonderful weather. Now that you are refreshed let's get ready to start your home learning again. The home learning will be the same learning that will take place in school.
Let us start the final term with a prayer:
Thank you for giving me
a mind that can learn
and a heart that can love.
Father, help me to keep learning every day of my life,
no matter what the subject may be.
Let me be certain that all knowledge leads to you.
Also, let me know how to find you and love you
in all the things you have created.
Lord, encourage me when the learning is hard
and when I am tempted to give up.
Guide me when my brain is slow
and help me to grasp the truth held out to me.
Keep sending us some photos of your work.
Have a lovely week Miss Conway & Mrs Browne
When school ended on the 20th March we have been in Lockdown. This has been a very unusual time for all of us. Some children have enjoyed being at home while others might have found it more difficult. This week we are going to have a look at a book called 'The making of Milton'. It is a story about a little boy who feels very anxious. Some of you might have been feeling a little anxious and we hope this boy helps you to rediscover your courage.
RE - The First Christians
Read p84, p85 and p86 with an adult.
Discuss with an adult the questions in the 'pause to talk' section.
Your task now is a very BIG ONE. You have to be like an apostle and tell others about Jesus.
You are going to create a book about Jesus.
The book will have 5 sections.
You do not have to write about each section maybe you could draw a picture for each section of your book. Remember to give your book a front cover and a title. (eg The Life of Jesus, A book about Jesus...)
Here are some questions to help you with each section.
You could also use a bible to give you more detail.
Part 1 - Jesus' Birth

- Who was the first to hear about it?
- Who told them?
- Who came with gifts for Jesus?
- How did they manage to find him?

- What did he do when Mary and Joseph took him to the Temple?
- How did Mary and Joseph feel? Why?
Part 3 - Jesus chooses Disciples (Simon Peter and Andrew)
- Why did Jesus need helpers?
- What happened when Jesus met Simon Peter and Andrew?
- Why did Simon Peter and Andrew not want to go back out in their boat?
- What happened when Simon Peter and Andrew did what Jesus said?
- Why were they ready to leave their fishing boats?
Part 4 - The Last Supper
