We are enjoying our class novel SO MUCH that we decided to use it as inspiration for our writing today. We looked at the paragraph from the chapter the terrible shovels and found evidence that tells us how the foxes were feeling. We were great detectives and found lots of evidence that we used to think about what it must mean, well done 👍2SB

This week we’ve been looking at writing playscripts. We’ve used the traditional stories of jack and Jill and jack and the beanstalk to explore the speech used between the characters. We then wrote up a scene from jack and the beanstalk including all efeatures of a playscript:
– cast list
– setting description and scene details
– name of scene
– character in margin
– stage directions in brackets ( )
Ethan swapped chairs for the teaching chair this morning and spoke to us all about the history of Independnece day! Thank you Ethan! 😀
Please do take some time to look at the year 2 non negotiables… these are what we must know confidently and independently by the end of the year. I wonder which ones you will practise over the holidays!
Good Luck year 2!
Keep me updated with how you get on!
