Bordesley Village Primary School

A place for every one.


Welcome to 2B Autumn Term 2017!

This Autumn term the children will be learning all about Florence Nightingale, where we will be looking at the different ways she improved hospitals and paved the way for modern nursing.


Our class texts that we will be reading and linking to our literacy lessons are ‘The Oxford Treasury of Fairy Tales’ where we will be focusing on the story of Sleeping Beauty and ‘The Worst Witch’. We will also be working hard to improve our phonics in Read Write Inc lessons.


Later this term the children will also be exploring the question ‘What do we see in our journey around the world?’ to enhance their geography skills.

In science we will be looking at ‘Humans and Other Animals’. We will be finding out all about what living things need to survive and what we should eat and do to stay healthy. We will be linking this to our DT lessons where we will be planning and cooking our own healthy soup!

PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday so please make sure your child’s PE is in school every week!


Homework and spellings will be given out every Friday. Homework will be collected every Wednesday so please make sure this is completed. Please also make sure your child practises for their spelling test which will take place every Thursday.
