Who can be creative? 

Let us enquire together working both independently and collaboratively!

Dear Lord,

May our classroom be a happy and loving place

This year, give us the strength to believe in ourselves as we seek new challenges and opportunities

Allow us to grow in faith and deepen our knowledge and understanding of the world, and each other

Help us to love one another and be the best versions of ourselves,

As we learn together, pray together and play together.




World Book Day 2023

For World Book Day 2023 the theme was 'Reading for Pleasure'. As a class we decided to focus on the story of 'The Enormous Crocodile' by Roald Dahl. We then enjoyed creating story spoons, retelling the story, crocodile pegs and using Talk for Writing to retell the story. We acted some parts of the story out and also explored the characters we had dressed up as and spent the day as those characters!

Internet Safety Day 

In Year Two we looked at Internet Safety and really focused on how to stay safe online. As a class we then produced information leaflets and presented them to the rest of the class.

Our RE Learning Journey: Community- Books

Science- Living things and their habitats

Our current Ark topic in Science is Living things and their habitats. To deepen our understanding, we chose to explore the school grounds and see if we could find any plants or habitats. We discovered plenty of plants and then discussed if they were alive, dead or had never lived, we learnt about this in lesson 2 of our Science topic. Year 2 really enjoyed exploring habitats and discussing which animals may live there.

During one of our lessons, we chose to play 'Charades' as one of the extended activities. We all performed something that we different or special to us and other children had to guess!

Here are Year Two looking wonderfully smart in their PE kits, ready for their first PE lesson of the school year. We even got everybody changed before our five minute timer went off!


Thank you so much to parents for providing the children with their kits in line with our school uniform policy. PE will continue to take place on Thursdays and Fridays this term. 


  • School starts at 9:00am, with the school gates opening at 8:35am (allowing extra time for all the children to make their way onto the school playground).
  • Please ensure the office staff have your up to date contact details.
  • Please ring the office if your child will be absent. 
  • Breakfast club starts at 8:00am and the gates will be closed at 8:15am.


If you have any questions or concerns, please see Miss Dyson, who is more than happy to answer any queries regarding your child's progress or general well-being. Feel free to approach me after school or contact the office to arrange a meeting.

Reading books

Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that their reading record is signed by an adult. Children need a reading book in school each day. Books are closely matched to their reading ability and will be changed as they improve and can answer comprehension questions about the text.



All children will be given weekly English and/or maths homework along with weekly spellings to be tested each Friday. All written homework must be presented to the highest standard. Homework is to be completed and returned to school on Mondays.



PE days are Thursdays and Fridays - please make sure you bring the correct kit (white top, dark shorts and indoor shoes in the Winter term). Please make sure any earrings can be removed or are not worn on PE days. I recommend that children bring their P.E kits to school on Monday, leave it at school and take it home on a Friday to be washed.



We pride ourselves on the appearance of our children. Please help us to maintain this by ensuring all children attend in the correct uniform, including school shoes.
