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 in the spring term is the Old Testament story of Joseph. We will link this to a brief look at the Ancient Egyptians. We will also be learning about space. Through this topic we will read the story book 'Bob; the Man on the Moon.' We will also research the first man on the moon; Neil Armstrong. This is a fun topic with lots of opportunities for art, DT and science.
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.
