The children have been doing various pieces of work based around a book by Simon Bartram called 'Man on the Moon - (a day in the life of Bob). The children have enjoyed reading the story and spotting the aliens hidden on each page! Bob is adamant there is no such thing as aliens but Year 2 know different! They have created stories, postcards, posters, warning signs, designed their own aliens and even created top trumps!
The children thought they knew all about Goldilocks and the Three bears, Jack and the Beanstalk and of course The Three Little Pigs, but how wrong they were! This unit of work was all about traditional tales with a twist! We read alternative versions of these traditional tales such as Goldilocks and Just One Bear, Jack and the Baked Bean Stalk and The Pea and the Princess. We then took Jack and the Beanstalk and did a shared write - 'Jessica and the Tall Tree'. The children then created their own versions independently. They came up with some fabulous ideas!
