Literacy Celebrations at Westgrove




The Year Twos have been focusing on synthesising ideas in their reading this week. They have discussed their prior knowledge before reading a book. They have then used their schema and clues from both fiction and non-fiction texts to change their thinking and make statements about a text.

They have also focused on word choice and how to use synonyms to describe both characters and settings. 


Here are some wonderful examples of work from Year 2 this week:
