Welcome to Year 2

Teaching Assistant- Mrs K. Hynes
Year 2 have adopted the Gospel value & virtue of 'love' and 'respect'.
Love - Acts 9:36
In Joppa, there was a woman named Tabitha, who was a believer. (Her name in Greek was Dorcas, meaning 'a deer'). She spent all her time doing good and helping the poor. Dorcas had many friends, she made clothes for people in need and she liked to help them. The whole town loved Dorcas because she loved her people.
Respect - 1 Peter 3:15-16
When you are called to give an account of your hope, answer with gentleness and respect, and with a clear conscience. In ancient Greece, people were considered to be intelligent when they were able to defend their ideas respectfully, having pondered them in a reflective way.
Plot point 2 ‘Stardust’
One day, Mabel’s sister found mum’s missing wedding ring and everyone called her a star.
Mum smiled and hugged Mabel’s sister.
Mabel sighed and wiped away a tear.
