Our Class Saint is St Peter; we celebrate his Feast Day on June 29th. St. Peter was the first Pope of the Catholic Church. He was a fisherman and he is one of Jesus' 12 apostles.
St. Peter is the Patron Saint of fishermen, net makers builders.
Prayer to St Peter
O glorious St Peter,
because of your vibrant and generous faith,
sincere humility and flaming love,
Our Lord honoured you with singular privileges
and especially leader of the whole Church.
Obtain for us the grace of a living faith,
a sincere loyalty to the Church,
acceptance of all her teachings,
and obedience to all her precepts.
Let us thus enjoy an undisturbed peace on earth
and everlasting happiness in heaven.
If you are home due to isolation, this section will contain the work that we will be covering at school during your absence. If you are attending school, you do not need to complete this work.
Tally Chart for House Points Videos and Activities
Please watch the short video first and then look at the activities. When you get onto the Year 2 Making Tally Charts activities, please focus on the first activity which is Diving into Mastery - Deep. You are welcome to try the other activities on this sheet but they are trickier. You could set yourself a challenge and see how far you get.
Have fun everyone.

Good morning everyone and welcome to week 2!
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and you enjoyed the sunshine on Saturday. It makes such a difference to our wellbeing when the sun shines and we can feel the sun's warmth on our bodies; I hope you managed to get outside. Being outside is good for us and it certainly makes me feel much better and calmer when I have been for a walk.
I have changed the format for your activities which you will see when you go to the Monday pencil. Remember to take your time with the activities and have regular breaks to keep your brain ticking over.
Don't forget to log onto letterjoin to practise handwriting. It really is important to keep doing some handwriting on a daily basis. Also, log onto dot.com and see what activities she has for you to do.
Have a wonderful week and I will look forward to seeing you on Friday when we launch the live video call. I am slightly anxious as this is very new to me. I must also apologise for the sound on the phonics video I have uploaded. I have played around with it and I just cannot get it any louder. I have checked the microphone and speaker volumes and I am still none the wiser. If any of your parents are technology whizzes, please ask them to email me with any helpful pointers so that I can get the sound working.
I look forward to seeing all of your amazing work once you send it to me. Take care everyone and God bless.
A Prayer for New Days Ahead
Heavenly Father, thank You for making all things new! As another new year begins, help me live each day for You. May I continually have a new song in my heart to sing to You, no matter what comes my way. I trust in You because I know that Your mercies are new every morning, and nothing ahead of me will take You by surprise. Amen.
Happy New Year!!
We hope you all had a lovely holiday. We are so sorry that we cannot be back in school to do all of our learning; hopefully we will be back in two weeks. Fingers crossed.
We will be calling you this week for a catch up and a chat and we are really looking forward to speaking to you all.
Please email us if you need any help and send us a photo of the work that you have completed. You do not need to print off the activities. You can just write your answers on paper and draw pictures, particularly for the seed and bulb matching activity.
Have a lovely week and we shall speak to you soon.
Mrs Greenan and Mrs Renoldi-King xx
Please share your home learning with us by sending in photos/videos of your work to our class email address which is Year1@holycrossprimary.thurrock.sch.uk
Stay safe everybody and we shall see you soon,
Mrs Greenan and Mrs Renoldi-King
Homework will be set on a Friday and it is to be completed by the following Wednesday.
Your child has been provided with a blue homework book in which to do any homework. You do not need a printer to complete the activities, they are all in the blue book. Please remember to bring your child's homework book in on the Wednesday so that we can mark the work and then have it returned to you by the Friday.
Please continue to read every night with your child and sign the reading record book.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday, your child will have one week to learn them. They will be tested either the next Thursday or Friday.
We would like to reassure you that your child will not be put under undue pressure on their return to school. We will do all that we can to help each individual child to catch-up on missed learning whilst striving to create a nurturing and caring environment within school.
Our children’s well-being is of utmost importance to us.
We recently sent out the phase 2 and 3 phonic sounds so that you can check which sounds your child knows. Please return these sheets when completed and we will work on those sounds with your child in class.
Do you have any pets that you would like to share a picture of?
We grew most of our vegetables during the lockdown at our allotment. Did you grow anything?
