Class Saint


St Francis of Assisi 4th October - The Patron Saint of ecologists

Year 2 chose St Francis while thinking about vocations.

He was a kind and caring man who cared for God’s creatures.

We are learning about animals and their habitats in Year 2 as well as looking at vocations.

Our big question in science this half term is 'What is our school made from?'

We will be carrying out investigations to look at everyday materials and their uses, including their properties and discussing suitability.

This half term we are looking at geography and the big question – ‘Who lives in a place like this?’
