WRITING: Report Writing  


Today I have a very important job for you to do Year 2! For your writing task, I would like you to write your review of your time in Year 2 for your school reportsmiley


We would normally do this together at school and enjoy remembering all of the wonderful things that we have done together, but this time I would like you to do your absolute best writing for me at home.


In your ‘Review of the Year’ I would like you to write about all the fantastic things you have enjoyed in Year 2. You might like to write about all the new things you have learned, the different lessons you have enjoyed and all the other wonderful learning opportunities like our trip to the Lowry Museum, the KS1 Nativity, our ‘Beside the Seaside’ assembly, PE with Dave, our Great Fire of London topic or our science work about materials and their properties. There are many, many more wonderful memories, what can you think of? Have a look back at our class page for some reminders!


You can include your achievements, something you think you have really improved on this year and what you are most proud of. There is also space for you to write about something that you think you could be even better at and have as your own personal target for next year!laugh


I would like you to do your absolute BEST writing - beautiful, cursive joined up handwriting, clear finger spaces between words, careful use of capital letters and accurate punctuation. All of this should be done in a good quality, sharp writing pencil pleaseblush


You can print off the template below and write directly on to that or if you need to, we have blank copies available to collect from school today... 


Once it is completed, please can you return it to school by Friday 12th June. You have some time to complete this task, so if you don’t finish today, don’t worry! As long as it is completed by 12th June, that’s absolutely fine!smiley


You can do this by scanning or taking a photograph of your work and emailing it to school via the Y2 home learning email 





Posting it to our school address




Delivering it by hand in to the ‘Red Postbox’ which will be outside, at the front of school from Monday 8th June.


I hope you enjoy writing about all of our lovely memories from Class 2!blush
