The month, in his monthly video, the Holy Father calls for us to pray for the world in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Let us all pray together for the sick, for the people who are suffering. We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas — we who are put to the test — and deliver us from every danger. O glorious and blessed Virgin. I thank all Christians, all the men and women of good will who pray at this moment, in unison, whichever religious tradition they belong to.”
On Friday 27 March at 5pm UK time (6pm Rome), the Pope will pray on the steps of St Peter’s basilica. Although the square will be empty, there will be a period of Adoration and readings from Scripture. At the end of the service, the Holy Father will impart his Urbi et Orbi blessing and will offer a Plenary indulgence for the COVID-19 pandemic.

As our topic is night time we are looking very carefully at bedtime stories. In class we will be looking at the themes and ideas explored and the language used in the stories. We will be adapting them to write our own bedtime stories over the half term.
At home we would like the children to have as many bedtime stories as possible over the next few weeks. We have selected a wide variety of bedtime books for your child to choose from.
As part of our ongoing interactive display it would be fun for the children if bedtime reading selfies could be emailed/sent into school.
Class 2V will have Outdoor PE on Monday 27th January rather than on Wednesday 29th January just for this week. Thank you.
Thank you to everyone who came to see what school is like at night. We hope to have some photographs soon.

In Year 2 your child will need to bring their reading book bag every day. They will be able to change their books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, providing the reading record book has been signed. Please ensure they only bring their reading book, reading folder, and relevant homework in their books bags (NO KEYRINGS or TAGS), as it needs to fit in a small tray along with their indoor PE kit (white T- shirt, black shorts and black pumps — no bag needed). ALL PE KITS MUST BE LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.
For outdoor PE your child will need to bring their PE kit (tracksuit, extra T-Shirt and Velcro trainers) in on the outdoor PE day only in a stringed sports bag. Due to both the limited cloakroom space and because PE kits can get wet, they will need to bring it home the same day.
All stationery will be provided by school and the children will not be allowed to bring pencil cases. Thank you. Year 2 staff

Purple Mash is an award-winning website for primary school children. It enables the children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way. The children have been provided with an individual login to support topics that have been covered in class. Click on link below to access the site:-
Spellings will be sent home with your child on a Friday for you to practise at home together. We will then have a spelling test each Friday to assess progress made. We are very grateful for any support you can provide your child with in this area. The children have been given a spelling book to stick their spellings into. This is book is also for use at home when they children are practising their spellings. It must be brought in to school every Friday.
Your child is welcome to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink in class. It must however has a ‘sports lid’ that eliminates (well reduces the risk of spills). We encourage the children to take them home each evening, rinse them and bring them in full each day.
Please read with your child at least four times per week. Check your child’s understanding of their book by asking them a range of questions such as: What might happen next? Why do you think the boy is feeling sad? What sort of mood is being created? This will help them to engage with their reading on a deeper level. Please see your child’s weekly homework for further examples of types of questions to ask them.
