Meet the Teacher Presentation – September 2023

St Elizabeth’s Meet The Teacher Presentation Year 2 September 2023

Hello and Welcome to Year 2

Hello and welcome to our class page. We are Durham Class – Year 2!

We are the oldest children in Key Stage One and really like to show what super role models we can be to the rest of the children. Each and every day we work hard to follow our school mission statement: “Be like Jesus. Be your best. Be Safe. Be Caring.” As a class, we love each other and look after each other just as Jesus would like us to; we treat each other as we would like to be treated. We work hard to reach our full potential and we know that we can change our world!

Break and lunch times

As part of our morning routine, children have a healthy snack (either fruit or vegetable), which is provided by the school.

Alternatively, the children can bring in their own healthy snacks from home. Again these must be either fruit or vegetable. Nuts or items containing nuts are not allowed.

Please click on the School Meals button on the right-hand side of the page to see our lunch menu.

In Year 2, Our Franciscan Value is Faith

As a school, we have been thinking about our Franciscan heritage and have decided to introduce seven values – based on the Franciscan values – to underpin all that we do at St Elizabeth’s. The seven values are: Joy, Forgiveness, Faith, Respect, Service, Peace and Stewardship. We will all strive to live out these values on a daily basis but each class will pay close attention to their own value. In Year 2, our value is faith. We tried to think of Bible stories about faith and decided upon the story of Jesus walking on water (Matthew 14: 22=23). We retold the story and created our beautiful display in the school hall.

We live in a digital age and children can gain a lot of knowledge and understanding from good quality educational games and websites.

We have made a list below of a few that we find useful in school, which may aid your child’s learning at home. Please let us know if you have any further suggestions and we will add them to the list.
