Letters to Horatio

Today the children had to write letters to Horatio (Hamlet’s best friend) telling him about the guards frightening experience. The children had to make sure they did the following things:

  • Write in first person.
  • Write in the past tense.
  • Use adjectives to add detail.
  • Use verbs to say what happened.
  • Use adverbs to say how it happened.
  • Use rhetorical questions.
  • Use exclamations.

We were SO impressed with your writing.


A great week back…

Well done Year 2 on a fabulous first week back.

This week in English, we have been learning all about the features of Non-fiction texts. We then used the Non-fiction texts to find out information all about castles. At the end of the week, we wrote a castle information page.

In Art, we have been learning how to draw castles. We had to follow step by step instructions. Follow the link here if you want to carry on practising drawing your castle at home.

In Maths, we have been using pictorial representations to solve addition and subtraction calculations.

I hope you have had a great weekend!

See you tomorrow
