Our final English topic of the Autumn Term has been based around the narrative 'Wanted: The Perfect Pet'. This has been a really fun book to explore and 2J have done very well in all our lessons. This week we have concluded the unit by performing the story with a Narrator, a Henry and a duck before writing our own version of the story. See the pictures and videos below of our acting skills!

For our next English topic in Year 2, we have started to look at Acrostic Poetry. We spent today's lesson reading through many different acrostic poems about many different topics including FOOTBALL, PUMPKINS, AFRICA, SEASIDE and ANIMALS. We shared our opinions and talked about what made each poem interesting. We then moved on to exploring exciting vocabulary in poems. Finally, we planned, wrote and performed our own acrostic poems about an animal.

All our poems were amazing, here are a few examples!

We really enjoyed performing the poems using expression in our voices today!

For our first English topic in Year 2, we have explored some of Aesop’s Fables. Ask your child what makes a fable a fable, and what it means to have a moral. We re-told the story of ‘The Hare and the Tortoise’ before moving on to ‘The Lion and the Mouse’. Today, 2J really enjoyed acting out the story; can you tell which part of the story is in each of these ‘freeze-frame’ pictures?

The Performance!
