Year 2 – St Anthony

Dear Children,


Unfortunately, we won't be seeing each other today. Mr Donovan (our Site Manager) has been to the school early this morning and seen that there is a thick layer of snow. This means that the car park, paths and playground are unsafe, so today the school is closed. 


Below, you will find the work that we would have completed in school today. Spend some of your time at home going through this with an adult/carer. If you do not have a printer, do not worry. Use a pencil and find a piece of paper to record your answers on.


We would have also practised our school nativity so spend some of your time practising your part in preparation for our Performance tomorrow! 


Once your home learning is complete:

-have a snowball fight

-build a snowman

-make a snow angel

-have a hot chocolate and watch a Christmas film


Enjoy the snow! 

We can't wait to see you again tomorrow!


Your St Anthony teachers


Welcome to Year 2 - St Anthony

Teacher: Mrs N Moore - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs H Westrop (Maternity cover) / Mrs C Steele (Maternity leave)- Thursday and Friday

Learning Support Assistants: Mrs K Greenberg, Miss S Huggins and Mrs J Green.


Our Class Saint is St Anthony. St. Anthony of Padua is one of the Catholic Church’s most popular saints. Saint Anthony of Padua, patron saint of lost and stolen articles, was a powerful Franciscan preacher and teacher. He is typically portrayed holding the child Jesus—or a lily—or a book—or all three—in his arms. 

St. Anthony of Padua’s life is what every Christian’s life is meant to be; a steady courage to face the ups and downs of life, the call to love and forgive, to be concerned for the needs of others, to deal with crisis great and small, and to have our feet solidly on the ground of total trusting love and dependence on God.


Prayer to St Anthony

Saint Anthony, great wonder-worker,

intercede for us

that God may grant us our request

if it be for the good of our soul.

Saint Anthony,

be our patron, our protector,

and our advocate in life and in death.
