Formby Trip and Year 2 sleepover Friday 12th July 2019


Welcome to our Summer term and our new topic;


This term the children will exploring different settings through some inspirational fiction and non fiction texts. 

The Journey By Aaron Becker is an imaginative adventure story of a lonely girl who draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny.

Jack and Beanstalk is another quest that the children will use their Talk For Writing skills to adapt the story to make it their own.

We will also be learning the story of the Papaya that spoke and recreating this with our objects that will speak to us through the story.

Year 2 children will be challenged this term through many consolidation activities in Literacy and Maths.  They will show more independence in their attitude to learning and will celebrate with a sleepover at the end of the term.

Year 1 children will develop their understanding of key skills taught in Maths and Literacy and will continue to consolidate their phonics ready for the phonic screening.

Along the way we use our curriculum to looks at the different aspect of our topic and this can be viewed on our topic overview.

Thanks again

Mrs Davenport
