Y2 Stories and Toys
In English we had fun acting and playing games assisting The Jolly Postman deliver his letters. This helped us to understand what makes a traditional tale. We became authors; writing our own stories using fantastic adjectives to help our readers picture our settings and characters in their heads. Our imaginative writing was improved by studying toys through the ages. Everyone (even the adults!) learnt something after exploring the amazing historical toy box from St Neots museum and listening to Ann from The Farmland Museum. Many of the children went home and raided their parents and grandparents attics to share some lovely old toys and compared them to their own toys, using big voices and answering interesting questions too! We also investigated which material was best to make an umbrella to keep teddy dry and used our number bond knowledge and measuring skills to create a moving, model vehicle using a chassis, axles and wheels.
