Be the Good Soil Mark 4:1-20

Year 2W 2023 - 2024

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back to the Spring term! We are looking forward to another exciting term with Year 2!


In maths, we will begin by focussing on the properties of numbers and then move onto fractions of amounts. Would you rather have half a cake or a quarter? We will also be doing a weekly 'MAD MINUTES' sessions, where the children are timed whilst completing their times tables. Ready, steady, get practising! 



In English, we are focussing on the book 'The Dragon Machine’ by Helen Ward. The children will be making predictions, exploring unfamiliar words, ordering the events of the story and answering comprehension questions. Towards the end of this half term, we will be looking at instructions.

In Geography, our topic is 'Where does our food come from? ‘Throughout this topic, we will be exploring how food is made and the process of how our food gets to the shops from farms. What is used to make bread? 



Our Science topic is 'Animals including Humans'. We will look at the life cycles of different animals and explore the different organs in our bodies.

In RE, we will be focussing on the topic 'The Bible'. Our learning will be focussed around many ‘Big Questions’ and we will be discussing how the Bible is separated into two sections - the Old Testament and the New Testament.
