This Term's Topics
Joseph the Dreamer / Sun, Moon and StarsThe Jolly Postman
Welcome back to school Year 2, Happy New Year!
Our first topic for Spring term is Joseph and other Bible stories out of the Old Testament. We will be talking about the feelings of the characters in the story, re-telling the story and creating our own dream fiction. The Sun, Mood and Stars dream that Joseph had will link nicely to our art work by Vincent Van Gogh.
During our planning with the children they have expressed an interest in learning more about the moon and outer space and we will be sharing space stories.
After half term we will be planning our work around the book The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. This will enable us to study lots of traditional tales and the characters within them. We will also be able to look at other stories by these authors. If anyone has any books by these authors, traditional tales, or puppets from these stories they can bring them in to share.
Class 6 Home Learning
Please practise spelling, times tables and reading each week and have fun selecting activities from the homework grid to be brought into school. One activity is due in every 2 weeks.
This year we will send spellings to be learnt each week. Class 6 will receive these on a Friday to be tested the following week. There will also be a reading comprehension for you to share with your child. There is no expectation that these are completed in one go.
Weblinks for homework can be found on the Robert Ferguson Primary School class news page www.rferguson.org
Reading should be encouraged as a daily activity whenever possible.
