Look back with pride and forward with confidence

See what we have been learning about...

We have been learning all about the Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg...

After reading the story we had a go at 'hot-seating' and pretended to be the Jolly Postman and the different characters. Then, we drew a HUGE map of his route and the places he visited and directed ourselves around the map using NESW directions.

For our homework we designed a post-bag and some of us even made our designs! 


Last week, 2J was mysteriously transformed overnight into the Hobgoblin Supplies shop, and the children into the staff! The 'Big Boss' gave Year 2 a mission to write a letter to the Wicked Witch telling her what Hobgoblin Supplies had for sale, otherwise Hobgoblin Supplies would have to close down! Feathery hats, black cats, white rats and spooky toilet roll were all available for a good price! 


During the next couple of weeks, we are going to be finishing our letter writing topic with many activities, such as making class story books of The Jolly Postman and designing and making our very own postbag! 


We really hope you enjoy the pictures below of our learning so far...
