The Year 2 team.
The targets in the Musts column describe writing expectations at the end of Year One. Targets in the Should column describe writing expectations at the end of Year Two.
Those in the Could column describe writing expectations at the end of Year Three. In our classes, we have children working at each of these stages.
Look at these examples of good work!
Congratulations, Callum! You are our Star Writer! Your story about The Flamingo’s Child was very detailed and exciting, and you used speech marks, conjunctions and paragraphs to make your work really clear and well set out

The poetry website we looked at today in Literacy is:
and the animal poems we read today can be found here:
You can find lots of other funny poems all over the website too.
I know you Owls have great senses of humour and seem to know a lot of animal jokes, so your homework this week is to find or make up an animal joke and post it in a comment on the blog.
Extra points if you can make me and Mrs Greatorax laugh
This homework will be given out in Homework books on Monday but if you find a really funny animal joke over the weekend please post it to cheer us all up on this miserable, rainy weekend!!
I have received lots of your photographs of you all reading in some very unusual places around your houses (and some in different countries) I’m very impressed with the unusual places you all found to read!
Thank you for your great photographs Owls, I’m really looking forward to seeing you all again on Tuesday.
You are invited to take part in our annual “Reading in an Unusual Place” competition. Please photograph your child reading to you in the most unusual place they can think of then email the picture to your teacher. There will be a small prize for the winner.
The photo should show you reading with your child in the most unusual ‘safe’ place.
Your child’s face needs to be obscured by the book they are reading.
Your reading record should also be in the picture.
The competition closes on 1st January 2014 and the winners will be announced in Year Two assembly on Tuesday 7th January.
Can’t wait to see your photos!
