‘Growing in love, in the spirit of Christ, for the benefit of all’


Year 2 - Religious Education



Our new topic is 'Books'. Throughout this topic, we are going to be looking at different types of books that we use at school and home, why they are important and then also looking at the different books we find in the Bible. We will analyse the scripture from the Gospel of Luke 5: 1-11 and then analysing the piece of artwork below. 



Our artwork for this topic - The Miraculous Draught of Fishes by John Reilly



Our Advent topic is 'Preparations'.  I have chosen a piece of artwork that represents the story of the Annunciation - when Angel Gabriel came to Mary to tell her she was having a baby.



Our current topic is called 'Signs and Symbols'. Throughout the topic, we will be looking at what signs and symbols are, signs and symbols in Baptism, and why signs and symbols are important. We will be looking at Matthew 3:13-17 and will be analysing the artwork posted below - 'Baptism of Christ'.




Our first topic - Beginnings. Throughout this topic, we will look at the Creation story and talk about different new beginnings we have experienced.
