Recommended Reading Books for KS1
This half term in Year 2 we have been working very hard on our writing skills. In the first few weeks we invited parents or relatives to attend our IMPACT sessions so we could work together on character and setting descriptions. It was great fun!
In class we have been reading and studying “Traction Man” by Mini Grey. We have used this text to continue our studies on character and setting descriptions. We even created our own Traction Man suits for our own stories and used our knowledge of Materials, from this term’s Science studies, to help us choose the correct material for each item.
In PSHE we have been thinking about our Dreams and Goals. We learned about ways to overcome difficulties when striving for goals and thought about how other people help us to achieve. We ended the topic by designing and creating Dream Birds to go in our whole school “Garden of Dreams.”
