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.
Spring 2 virtues: Faith-filled & Hopeful
Year 2 visit the Guru Nanak Gurdwara (Smethwick)
Guru Nanak Gurdwara Smethwick - is dedicated to practicing and promoting the Sikh faith in the name of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder and first Guru of the Sikh faith. Established in 1961 as the first and largest Gurdwara in the United Kingdom, it remains one of the most prominent and influential Sikh Gurdwaras in the world with a weekly congregation of approximately 10,000.
Over the years the Gurdwara has developed into an iconic place of worship for Sikhs and a community hub that is open to all. Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s key message of equality and contribution to society is of significance to people of all faiths and those of no faith at all
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.
