Wonderful writing from Year 2!

Last week was the last week of the Year 2s Geography unit ‘Global Voyage’.  Last week, in English, the children have been using their prior knowledge about China to draft their own information text ‘All about China’.

As you can see, the children worked really hard to write excellent sentences with a wide range of vocabulary.

Well done Year 2 for all the amazing writing you have continued to do this week.
