The Art of Persuasion 

Today year 2 were looking at persuasive writing. We spoke about using persuasive language such as ‘I believe’, ‘I am certain’ and ‘In my opinion’ to make our ​​sentences more powerful. We recorded ourselves trying to persuade other children to come to our fabulous school. Have a look at the videos to see how we got on.

Super Smoothies

Today Year 2 had a wonderful afternoon making smoothies using the Smoothie Bike. We decided that some classes might not know how to use it so we wrote some instructions. We used imperative ‘bossy’ verbs and time adverbials to let others know what to do. All the children agreed that the banana and raspberry smoothie was delicious. Yum Yum!

A New Beginning

Today marked a new beginning for the children in Year 2. A new classroom and a new teacher were only a small number of changes that the children faced. Today we discussed class rules, routines and school values. This afternoon we came up with words that each child at Heygreen should be. Words like respectful, kind, caring and happy we’re all written down and put into a life sized silhouette. We’re all looking forward to a fantastic year!
