We have three Year 2 classes and our teachers are Miss Griffiths and Mrs Baker..
In Year 2 the children study a range of genres, exploring different texts and picking out their key features. As part of their English lessons this term the children have been 'instruction detectives', discovering the purpose of instructional texts and identifying their features. Activities included an instruction hunt around the school (including the school kitchens!), reading and ordering a variety of instructions and learning to listen to instructions carefully. This last objective was fully put to the test when all children baked their own cakes-without help from teachers! What could have been a real Eton mess was in fact a fondant fancy, with shining examples of teamwork, kindness and superb listening skills.
