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

Year 2W 2023 - 2024

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back Year 2! We are all so excited to begin this year with you all. Year 2 is a very important year, with lots of things to learn…are you ready? Let’s see what we are 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.




In English we will be diving into the book ‘Prince Cinders’, and reading all about the poor character who is treated badly by his hairy brothers. This is a traditional story with a twist, which we will retell orally and write our own version. We can’t wait to read your stories! We will also look at some non-fiction texts all about ‘The Weather’.

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.
