During part of our daily Read, Write Inc lessons, we work in pairs to read through our texts. One of us acts as the teacher using the 'teaching stick' whilst the other reads. This week, our story was called 'The Lion's Paw' and it was all about a Roman slave called Androcles who befriended a ferocious lion.

To end our week, the children experimented with oil pastels, chalk pastels, paint and tissue paper to create fire. We had lots of fun but got a little bit too messy again!

In Year 2, we are thoroughly enjoying our Reading this term - we have completely immersed ourselves into nature... During Woodland story time, we are loving reading 'Hedgehog by Dick King Smith', around our firepit. We are keeping with the theme of nature during our class story time too; we are listening to the adventures of 'Mr Fox by Roald Dahl'. We were all so shocked when Mr Fox had his tail shot off by the farmer!
We haven't just been reading for pleasure; we know how important it is to develop our own reading skills such as skimming texts to retrieve information and being able to identify features within a text. We have worked hard to answer comprehension questions about 'A River' and also copied the author's style to write our own adventure stories.
In 'Steps to Read', we have been reading and discussing the features of non-fiction texts, in particular, 'The Sea Book by Charlotte Milner'. We have identified: table of contents, headings, sub-headings, different style fonts, pictures with captions, diagrams with labels and we've even learnt all about glossaries. Did you know that octopuses squirt ink at their predators to confuse them?

The children really impressed us with how they found out about London in 1666 from paintings and Samuel Pepy's diary. We even figured out he was a musician from a very small piece of paper he was holding!

In English, we have been very busily planning and writing our first draft for our circular narrative 'A River'. We have had lots of fun applying the noun phrases, similies and repeated phrases we found to our own journeys.

During PE the children have been playing team building games this week. We had a lot of fun trying to pass the hoop around our circle of friends without unlinking hands!

So far in English, we have enjoyed sharing our Vehicle text - A River, and studying the Model - Circular Narrative text, which we are gathering ideas from. We have had fun with creating similes and noun phrases, which we are looking forward to using in our own story writing based on a journey.
