  • Me and My Family
  • Toys
  • Cold Lands

Personal Development and Mutual Understanding We all love PDMU because we get to explore our personal and emotional development, health and safety, relationships with others, and how we can all work together for the good of our community. We are able to discuss all our hopes and fears in a safe environment during Circle Time and we can also have fun in doing so! Please bring the appropriate P.E. kit.

The Arts In Primary 2 we are exposed to lots of wonderful opportunities to be creative. We especially love participating in a variety of music, dance and art activities that we are able to complete through our cross curricular topics.

Religion We will be following the Grow in Love Religion programme and learn about the different celebrations in the church year. Fr Farren will also visit us throughout the year and we love performing class assemblies.
