Please see the tab on the right for Information regarding Christmas 

Autumn 2nd Half Term 2017 in Sunflower Class FS2

We will begin this half term by looking at Autumn Celebrations, we shall be exploring pumpkins and will be finding out about Bonfire Night and Diwali.


Our main topic this half term will revolve around The Jolly Postman from the text ‘The Jolly Postman’ by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

During the term we will be looking at the work of the Jolly Postman and the journey of a letter from the post box to the letter box. We will be thinking about bikes safety and looking at maps.

Throughout the term we will look at the different characters that the Jolly Postman meets while delivering the letters.

 When we meet the Gingerbread Man, we will mapping out the story, baking our own gingerbread men and finding out what would have happened to the Gingerbread Man if he had tried to swim the river.


When looking at the tale of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ we will be thinking about our own Grandmas and writing sorry letters to Little Red Riding Hood’s Grandma from the Big Bad Wolf. 

At the end of term we will be looking at different versions of the Jolly Postman such as The Jolly Christmas Postman and The Jolly Pocket Postman along with a number of Christmas stories; and of course preparing for our Christmas celebrations.
