This week Year 2 have enjoyed an amazing Book Week. The children explored the text ‘Iggy Peck Architect’ by Andrea Beaty and used this story creatively to develop their learning in all subjects.

In Literacy the children acted out the story and worked on their role play skills. They developed their own characters and wrote short stories in the style of Iggy Peck.

In Numeracy the children have continued to work on money and explored ways of making  amounts using different coins.

They have also been engaged in a range of Art and Design activities related to the book. They built structures and bridges using various materials thinking carefully about their properties.

We were very lucky to receive a visit from the well known children’s author David Bedford who read to the children and explained how to become a good writer.

The children looked wonderful in their book character costumes and enjoyed the character parade.
