Reflection - Term 5

Jelly Bean Prayer


Red is for the blood you gave, 

and black is for the empty grave. 

Yellow is for the shining sun, 

white is for the new life begun. 

Green is for the grass and trees 

and purple is for your majesty. 

Orange is for the edge of night, 

and pink is for the morning light. 


Popokotea Class - Term 4

I hope you have had a lovely half term Year 2! We are now in Term 4, which means that we are half way through the school year!

Hasn't that gone quickly! This term we will become 'Street Detectives' for our new topic! We will be exploring our local area and looking at it's geographical features. We'll also be carrying out our own fieldwork to observe what transport is often used in Aylesham.

Term 3 - Reflection

God our Father,

We remember the wise men travelled many miles to spend time with Jesus and offer him gifts. 

As we sit and spend time with Jesus today, we offer him the gift of our hearts, to love you and each other always. 

We make this prayer through Christ, Your Son. 


Popokotea Class - Term 3

Welcome back to school Year 2! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! This term we will be exploring the topic Movers and Shakers where we will learn all about different significant figures. We will be looking at the key achievements that people have been remembered for in History. 

Term 2 - Reflection


May God be with you in your sorrow, and comfort you in your loss. May your spirit be lifted, may your heart be filled with peace, and may the light of God's promise fill you with joy and hope.
