Welcome to 2G

Our theme for this term is...Quirky Quests and Twisted Tales!

This term we’ll be reading lots of books with a quest theme and some traditional tales with a twist. We’ll be travelling with Syd and his Grandad in ‘Grandad’s Island’ to see where their adventure takes them and coming to the rescue with Charlie Stinky Socks as he prepares to save the day…again!

We’ll be reading about the Three Billy Goats Fluff who annoy the poor troll with all their clip-clopping and who’d have thought that Jack doesn’t climb a beanstalk after all, but a JELLY bean stalk!

We’ll also be looking at the lifecycle of plants in science and growing some potatoes and runner beans. Perhaps we’ll try to grow a jelly bean stalk too – I’m sure the children won’t want any and will gladly donate them all to Miss Grindley!

More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Planning Grid' which can be found in 'Files to Download' at the bottom of this page.
