Today we used online and physical dictionaries in the classroom to helf the children understand a more challenging text. We used the website below and the key words. See if they can work out what the words are in their home reading books.
We are really looking forward to seeing you all at the Reading meeting orgainised for to discuss how the school teaches reading within our curriculum and how the children can best be supported when reading at home.

The year 2 children who attend French club had a super evening learning about the parts of the body that you would find on a bird. They then used this knowledge, as well as their knowledge of colours, to help them to make un rouge-gorges (a robin redbreast).
