The adults who help us in Year 2 are Mrs Gallagher, Mrs Melluish and Mr Marley.
They always try to keep us safe and happy.
They encourage us to be good witnesses, make good choices and try to be like our wonderful role model, Jesus Christ.
We think about the question, "What would Jesus do?" to help us with this!
We live our lives through the 5 Ws
In our class we follow the 5 W's and make sure that everyone feels WELCOME.
We share the WORD of God in what we do and what we say.
We protect the WELFARE of our friends by thinking 'what would Jesus do' so that we are all happy at school.
Every day we WORSHIP together in class and in assemblies, sharing our prayers and thoughts with God.
By doing these things we WITNESS the work and life of Jesus in our school every day.
Our Class Saint is ...
We have found out lots about our Class Saint!
Saint Anne and her husband Joachim were really good people who spent their lives worshiping God. When they were quite old, God blessed them with a special baby. This special baby was Mary who went on to become Jesus' mother!

What an amazing time we've had learning all about castles! We have made our own castles, painted castles in the style of Paul Klee and even applied for a job in a castle.
We loved our topic on toys where we made puppets, Andy Warhol inspired printing, wrote poems and programmed some Beebots.
What a Wonderful World!
We had lots of fun learning about God's wonderful world during our topic lessons.
Have a look at our Easter Island Head sculptures, pictures from Rocket World day (where we found out about different countries from our special visitors) and our topic finale!
Happy Birthday to our School!
St Bernadette's School has been open for 50 years and what a brilliant 50 years it has been! We've begun our year of celebration with a special assembly and a party in our class.
We loved hearing and dancing to some of the songs from the year when our school first opened!
Our Wonderful Writing!
We have been working so hard on our writing in Year 2 and we are super proud of our work. Our week has been filled with some exciting work on George's Marvellous Medicine and we decided to write some letters to George.
We can't wait to read more of the book to see what happens next!

In July, our prayer focus is
During the month of July, we are thinking about how we will soon be moving on into a different school year. We have thought about times when we have moved on in our lives and how sometimes we have found this tricky. We read the poem below which really helped us to feel comforted and know that God is always with us. We thanked God for carrying us through some of our hard times and will ask God to help us as we move on to our new class.
We have also been saying Bishop John Arnold's special prayer:
"Stay with us, Lord, on our journey".
In our R.E. topic called 'Treasures', we have been learning about all the things that we think are really special and the treasures God created in His wonderful world. We have been thinking about how we can care, preserve and protect these treasures.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus
During June, we thought about the Sacred Heart of Jesus and how much we are loved. We said a special prayer each day:
'O, Scared Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in you.'
Saint Bernadette's Feast Day
To celebrate the feast day of our school saint on 16th April, we found out all about how Mary appeared to Bernadette in the grotto in Lourdes. We made an edible model of this scene which was such great fun!
Christmas in Y2
We enjoyed preparing for Christmas in Year 2- our tree was decorated, we had an Advent calendar with treats in, the post box was full of Christmas cards and we even had a cheeky elf called Jingle sent to us by Father Christmas!
We got SOOOO excited! We never forgot though, that CHRISTmas begins with Christ and all the preparations are to get ready to celebrate the birth of God's son. We had a wonderful time telling the Christmas story through song and dance during our Christmas concert! We made some beautiful stained glass Nativity pictures as well!
