Wednesday 6th May

Good Morning Year 2

Challenge:  Listen to the audio of me reading the morning message.  Can you read along as I speak?

Miss Writer's Morning Message

Today is Wednesday 6th May, 2020.  In Miss Pluckrose's letter she wrote that May is a special month.  Do you remember why it is special?  


May is a special month for Mary, our mother.  On our Liturgy page, Mr Griffin has put a short lesson about why May is special.  You can also watch this video:  It will remind you how to say the Hail Mary.  Maybe you could find your Rosary Beads and pray the Rosary prayers as a family.


On Monday, you were asked to think about what makes you special and unique.  I received a lovely email from a boy in our class saying that he is special and unique because he really enjoys football and he loves animals.  Hopefully he will like this video of cheeky Chickpea!


Have a good day everyone!

Morning Prayer

Hail Mary Full of Grace,

Blessed art though amongst women. And Blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
