Literacy / Connected Learning – Fairytale Project

Having completed the story S or the story planner for the chosen fairytale, the children should be practising the story (using actions) two or three times daily, so that they can answer the learning question:

  • Can I tell a traditional tale orally?

In addition, try out some of the following activities or those listed in Friday’s update.

  • Make a mask for one of the characters in the fairytale. (Art/DT)
  • Answer the questions written (see Friday’s update) from the point of view of the chosen character. (Literacy)
  • Draw a picture of a fairytale character. Write adjectives to describe the character around the outside. Remember to include adjectives to describe what the character is like as a person, e.g. kind, miserable, as well as what they look like, e.g. blue-eyed, small. (Literacy)

While this site is not a fairy tale one it is good for character descriptions. If you look at the 'Floppy And The Puppies' and 'Fraser The Eraser' stories and the activities associated with them they will give you some good ideas for writing your own character descriptions. Also if you look at the side of the web page you will see 'characters'. Click on this and it will give you some good examples of character descriptions.

  • Create a map for where a fairytale character lives. (Geography)
  • Again this site isn't really fairy tale based but does have a lot of good directional language that could be used in your fairy tale character map.




Mathematics Learning

Click on the links below the learning question to take you to an activity.

  • Can I follow instructions to mark a position on a grid? (Challenging)
    • Coloured Squares
    • Can I tell the time when it something o’clock or half past the hour?
    • Here are some good time websites 
  • Can you help the mouse tell the time?


The Music teachers have set you some new learning tasks. Click here to find out what they say.

The sheets needed are on “Link and Learn”. Look for them in the Music section; they start with Home Learning October 2011.


The Thai teachers have set this task for the Thai speakers.


Our theme this half-term is “The Stories People Tell”. Linking this with the situation in Thailand, an additional activity could be for them to tell the story of their experiences over the last week.

Please look back to earlier news updates on the Y2 webpage for earlier steps in learning or other suggestions that may have been missed.

Please email your child’s class teacher if you have any questions or queries. We are always happy to help clarify any uncertainties and provide extra support if necessary.
