Welcome to Term 4!
We are incredibly excited to be starting with a brand new topic;
Far, far, away...
Throughout this term we will be exploring traditional fairy-tales.
Our focus text will be 'The Jolly Postman, and other people's letters' by Janet and Allen Ahlberg.
We will join the jolly postman on his daily rounds as he delivers letters to the residents of a
fairy-tale town. While the postman is treated to numerous cups of tea, children will be re-introduced to a host of favourite characters, from the great and good such as Cinderella and the Three Bears, to the not so nice Mr Wolf and the Wicked Witch.
In Maths lessons, we will be continuing to work on our shape knowledge and fractions. We will also be revisiting measurements - length, mass, capacity and telling the time too!
We have been really impressed with the children's enthusiasm for learning their times tables. Please continue to login to Times Table Rockstars at home.
We would be grateful if you could take the time to talk with your child about the above themes, and encourage them to research further by questioning friends and relatives or using books/internet.

PE lessons for Year 2 are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure the children have their full, labelled PE kits for these days.
If you are interested in volunteering in school please come in and see us, we love having helpers in.

Thank you for your continued support.
