In Jesus We Learn, Love and Grow together
Be the Good Soil Mark 4:1-20

Year 2B 2023 - 2024

Mrs Bradley

Welcome to Year 2! It is lovely to see all the children back and we hope you have all had a wonderful summer. We have a very excited term planned, with lots of great activities and learning ahead. 

Let's have a look what we will be learning this half term.


In maths we will be learning more about the place value of numbers, learning new methods for addition and subtraction and carrying out some measuring tasks.

This half term, in English we are going to be reading ‘Prince Cinders’, by Babette Cole. This is a traditional tale with a twist. I wonder which story it will remind us of? We will spend time exploring the illustrations, asking questions about the characters, making predictions and looking carefully at new vcaulary for us to learn. I can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Our geography topic is ‘What are Seasons?’. We will build on our knowledge from Year 1 learning why we have seasons, and if all countries have the same weather and climate.



In Science, we are going to be doing lots of experiments involving materials and their properties. Is cardboard waterproof? What does opaque mean? We will make predictions and learn lots of new vocabulary.



Our RE unit is ‘Jesus, friend to everyone’. What makes Jesus so special? Jesus welcomed everyone, and helped many people be the ‘best they can be’. We will enjoy reading many Bible stories that will allow us to reflect on how great Jesus is, and how we can live our lives being the best version of ourselves.



Important reminders

· PE kits must be in school every day

· Book bags must be in school every day

· Spelling and mad minutes should be practised everyday

· Try to read with your child everyday and ask them questions about the book they have read

· Homework is given out on a Friday and handed in every Thursday

Many thanks,

Mrs Bradley
