Year 2 began the year reading traditional fairy tales. We read the story of Hansel and Gretel. We went on a walk through the dark woods and imagined what it would be like to be Hansel and Gretel alone in the forest. We recreated the scene of Gretel pushing the witch into the oven. More recently, we have begun learning about the history of castles, thinking about where and why they were built. Our writing this half term, will be based around finding a missing dragon which is lurking around school, eating all of Mr Hawxwell’s vegetables! What a naughty dragon it is!
