Exploring poetry

In ERIC today, Year 2 Toucans explored poetry. Miss Williams read us a very funny poem about bedbugs to start with! She then made a book blanket of lots of different poetry books. We chose one to enjoy with our friends and read some poems together.

At the end, we discussed with our friend which one we enjoyed the most and put a post-it note on the page. Next time we can explore poems other children have enjoyed and see if we like them too!

Learning about instructions

This week in our English lessons we have been learning about instructions. Today we followed a set of instructions for how to play the game ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’ We had great fun! We then compared instructions to a recount and learnt that they are always in present tense. We are hoping to write our own instructions soon so keep checking our blog!
