A big welcome back to everyone in Class 2! I hope everyone had a nice rest after the long Autumn Term and had a fun and happy Christmas and New Year! I am very excited for the term ahead and looking forward to 2018!
This term our first topic is ‘Authors and Letters.’ Our focus for this will be ‘Jill Murphy,’ the author of lots of children’s picture books such as ‘Whatever Next!’ She also wrote the novel series ‘The Worst Witch’, which I know are popular with the children in Class 2! We will be looking at a selection of her books and writing character descriptions and book reviews before researching the author and creating a biography. We will look at writing letters for a variety of purposes and write a draft letter to Jill Murphy.
We will then move on to learning to write recounts in the form of Newspaper articles, with a focus on reporting events that take place in school. Our poetry unit this term will focus on performing a range of poems to small groups and to the whole class.
