We have had a fantastic time in Year 2 this week as we had the opportunity to meet the author and illustrator, James Mayhew. We have been studying his book in Big Reading, Katie in London so we were thrilled to ask him questions about being an author and an illustrator. In Literacy we started to draft, edit and publish a letter to Katie telling her about our virtual tour of the landmarks in London. We made sure to include the three skills, time connectives, conjunctions and the past tense. Moreover, in Maths, the children have been learning how to take away using the partitioning method and the column method. Also this week, the children have experimented in Science the best material to use to make a book and explored the properties of paper and plastic. Well done Year 2 for a great week of learning!
