Year 2 is taught by Miss McCurrie and teaching and learning is supported by Mrs Parker.
I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break. I have enjoyed hearing all about your Christmas adventures.
This term's learning will be based around the story 'The Magic Faraway Tree' by Enid Blyton. It is a fantastic story (and part of the Enchanted Wood series by Enid Blyton) following the adventures of four children, Beth, Joe, Rick and Frannie, who discover a magic tree in the middle of an enchanted wood, on their doorstep. In the tree lives some magical characters, such as Moonface, Saucepan Pan and Silky the fairy. Meeting these characters proves to be the beginning of many magical adventures.
This book was originally written in 1943 but the version we are reading is the 2014 version, which is an updated version of the text. If you would like to purchase this book to read along at home, you can find it on amazon or on thebookpeople.co.uk for around £5.59. The cover looks like the one above. If you are reading along at home, please only read up to the chapters we are up to in school. This will help to create excitement and prevent spoiler alerts!
Our classroom has been transformed ready for our learning and we have added to our 'reading forest' with our very own 'Magic Faraway Tree'.
