Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

 

Hello to all of our children and families who are working from home. We hope you are well and are able to enjoy this lovely sunshine. All the work that we have sent you is important but also make sure you are also outside in your gardens playing in the warm spring sunshine or having a lovely walk with your family.

We are certainly missing all of your lovely faces at school, but we know that it is important for you to stay safe.

 One thing that we want you to remember is to pray every day with your family. We can still do that and it is so important to remember that God Our Father loves us very much.

 Try not to worry and while at home the best way that you can help is to do what the grownups ask you and to be superstars for them, just like you are for us at school.

 We have put the links from our newsletter below for you to access at home. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. You are in our prayers and thoughts.

 

Love from all the staff in Year Two.

THE TIME WE SPRING-CLEANED THE WORLD

The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.

These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone -
They just really wanted to play.

Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.

And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.

All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.

We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.

The kids stopped going to school,
The mums and dads went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!

Dads started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!

The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.

So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.

Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!
