This week year 2 have been performing poems by various Authors. They watched some clips of Michael Rosen performing some of his own poetry in order to see what makes a performance have an impact on the audience. They absolutely loved watching these and found them rather hilarious.
They then had a go, in groups, at performing On the Ning Nang Nong by Spike Milligan and The Morning Rush by John Foster. Their performances were terrific and each group was able to bring these poems to life in different ways. Very impressive year 2!

Whilst learning about materials we were set a task to build a new house for
the three little pigs using natural materials in the forest. We had to
think about what we could use to build a strong house that wouldn’t be
blown down by the big bad wolf. Here are some pictures of our creations.
A few weeks ago we learned how to use speech marks correctly in our work,
to help us prepare for when we wrote our Charlie’s Bag stories. We
practised by working in partners and saying something to our partner. They
had to write down what we said by recording it in speech marks. We then
checked to see whether they had used them correctly or not and help them if
One week during Wroxham time some of us decided to make our own art
exhibition outside. We stuck our pictures to the wall and tried to
encourage people to buy them, almost like you’d see on holiday. It was lots
of fun and some of the year ones were very keen to buy our masterpieces.
