Reading For Pleasure

In Year 2, we use ‘Book Talk’ to promote a love of reading and stories at home. We will share a story in class and then add a link to a video (below on this page) where the story is being read aloud. Your children can then share this story with you at home and complete a book review verbally.

Autumn 1 virtues: Grateful and Generous

Year 2 celebrate the feast day of St Therese of Lisieux


 As a child, St. Therese had “sacrifice beads,” which was a small string of beads to help her count the “presents” she offered to God. Each time she would make a sacrifice such as letting someone else have their way, St. Therese would secretly reach into her pocket and “pull a bead” to Jesus on the Crucifix. Like St. Therese, these sacrifice beads in our pocket can help us to become more aware of offering “presents” to God all day long. To celebrate the feast day of St Therese of Lisieux Year 2 made their own sacrifice beads.
