Our Year

This term, our topic has been ‘Once Upon a Time’ where the children have read books about traditional tales. Their favourite book so far has been ’Rapunzel’ by Bethan Woollvin. The children have also enjoyed exploring other books by this author too including 'Little Red'. Chanel said, ‘I can't believe Little Red was so brave in this tale compared to the other Little Red Riding Hood!'. The children have loved sharing other traditional tales with their friends in our beautiful reading corner.  

The children went to the library to choose a book to bring back to school. They looked for books for our reading corner and we decided to choose books by the author Valerie Thomas. Kai said 'My favourite story so far is Winnie and Wilbur at the Seaside'. 

Year 2 have used this topic as a stimulus for other curriculum areas. For example in PSHE, the children received a letter from 'Queen Matilda' because she was worried about Rapunzel's personal hygiene habits in the tower. They explored ways to keep clean and wrote a letter back to the Queen suggesting ways to help Rapunzel.
