Welcome to Year 2
World Book Week 2018
In Year 2, we explored ‘Journey’, a wordless picture book by Aaron Becker. We enjoyed ‘reading’ each page by looking carefully at the detailed illustrations and using these to help us tell the story of the book ourselves. We had some very interesting discussions about the characters and plot, and the children made some really thoughtful predictions about how they thought the story would unfold at different points.
We used ‘Journey’ to inspire different pieces of imaginative art and creative writing throughout the week.
On our ‘World Book Day’ celebration day on Monday 12th March, we shared ‘When I grow up’ which is an illustrated version of the lyrics from the song by the same name, performed in ‘Matilda The Musical’. We had fun talking about all the things we would like to do when we’re grown up and created our own descriptions of our perfect day!
