Living, Loving, Learning - Christ at the Centre



Year 2 – St John the Baptist and St Margaret Clitherow



The staff team in Year 2 are Ms Brown and Miss Sherliker.


Year 2 is a pivotal year in a child's education as they come to the end of their time in Key Stage 1. We are able to build on the knowledge, skills and experiences of their journey so far. For our school, it is also children's last year 'downstairs' and pupils have the opportunity to act as role models for our Lower School phase before they move into Key Stage 2. 


On this page you will find a brief overview of our plans for the year, some general reminders and useful websites to support learning at home


Our Class Saints:


St Margaret Clitherow:

Margaret Clitherow was an English saint and martyr of the Roman Catholic Church, known as "the Pearl of York". She was pressed to death for refusing to enter a plea to the charge of harbouring Catholic priests. She was canonised in 1970 by Pope Paul VI. She is known as the patron saint of businesswomen. Her feast day is 25th March.



St John the Baptist:

John the Baptist was a mission preacher active in the area of Jordan River in the early 1st century AD. He preached repentence and baptism to prepare for Jesus' coming. He was a cousin of Jesus and is sometimes referred to as John the Baptiser. His feast day is 24th June.
