Good morning Year 2,

Dr. Seuss said it best… ‘Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.’

This is our last day together in Year 2. It has been a privilege and a pleasure being your teacher.

I am very proud of you all. I know that you will all achieve great things in the future!

A big THANK YOU to all the parents for your continued support throughout this year.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday!

Take care and God bless.

Prayer Prayer for Thursday 16th July

Prayer for the end of the school year.

At the end of this school year
we give thanks to God:
For all the teaching and learning
that has taken place in our school,
both in and out of the classroom,
For the talents and gifts that have
been shared and the challenges
that have been faced;
For the burdens that have been lifted
and the hurts that have been healed;
For the respect and care that has been given.
We give thanks for the friendships
that have just begun
and for those that have grown.
For the faith that has been lived
in our daily struggles,
For the hope that has lifted
our hearts on the dark days
And for the love that has kept us going.
Bless our families as we take our holidays,
may our time together leave us
with memories to cherish.
Pour out your love on us
that we may return renewed and refreshed
to continue our journey together .
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Amen

Catholic Social Teaching

Last week we explored the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and learnt that the principle of human dignity is the parent principle

The phrase ‘Image of God’ comes from Genesis (1:26 and 1:27) which says that God made humans in God’s own image. “God said, ‘Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.’ So, God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created image.” Gen 1:26, 27

 

Activities

When the Church writes its official teaching, it writes in Latin.

In Latin the phrase ‘Image of God’ is ‘Imago Dei’. We know that God has no physical body. God is pure spirit, so we can’t actually look like God. But we can be like God in our nature – in the way we act and speak and behave. We can be like God, being creative, not destructive.

The Principles of Catholic Social Teaching remind us how to be like God: how to act and be the image of God. Make some decorative signs that say ‘Imago Dei’ and put them on the mirrors in your house, so that when you look in the mirror and see yourself you are reminded that you are made in God’s image. You will find others if you google images, Imago Dei!

Pass th​e Peas, Please

You will need:

  • A plastic cup
  • Some dried peas or counters (two for each player)
  • A game board
  • Paper and a pencil each for calculating and recording scores

All players begin by writing 50 on their score sheets.
The first player puts two dried peas into a plastic cup.
They toss the peas onto the game board, and add the two numbers that the peas land on.
They then take this sum away from 50 and write down the answer on their score sheet.
The next player takes a turn.
After the first turn, the players start with the new number written on their score sheet and take the sum of the numbers away from that, rather than from 50.

To win:
The first player to reach zero wins.What if…?
Once you’ve played a few times, try changing the game!
Can you change the number of peas?
Can you change the starting number?
What could you do with the two numbers instead of adding them?

WALT: Order events

Here are five pictures showing something happening at different times of the day.

Have a good look at each one. What do you see in the picture?  What is happening? Could you describe it to someone else?
You could use these pictures in different ways. For example:
1. You could put them into an order in which you think they might happen through a day.
2. You could suggest what time these things happen in your day.
3. You could see how many hours might pass between pairs of pictures you have chosen.
4. You could draw another picture that might ‘fit’ between two of the pictures.
English Friday 10th July 2020

Proverb

Meaning

 

Precious things come in small packages. Small things or people can be just as good or better than larger or taller ones.
People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. You shouldn’t criticise someone for doing something wrong when you do things wrong too.
More haste, less speed. Although it is important to be quick at things, don’t rush, as you’ll probably make a mistake.
Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched. Don’t make plans before something has actually happened. It might not happen!
A stitch in time save nine. If you deal with a problem straightaway it can save you a lot of time or trouble later.
Empty cans make the most noise. People who are empty of brains make more noise than those who are clever!
Strike while the iron is hot. If something needs doing, get started on it straightaway.
Prevention is better than cure. Stopping something bad from happening is better than letting it happen and then trying to sort out the problem.

Carefully read each proverb and try to explain in your own words what you think they mean

Many hands make light work.  

 

 

 

Don’t run before you can walk.  

 

 

 

Too many cooks spoil the broth.  

 

 

 

Actions speak louder than words.
