Year 2 have had a great start to Term 3. We are starting new topics across many subjects and improving our skills in others.

This year in writing, we have looked at recounts as one of the main text types. So far we have looked at general recounts and procedural recounts and now we are studying how to recognise and write a factual recount.

Students are also working on their sentence writing skills to build great texts. They are expanding their sentences with adverbs and adjectives, and learning how to use onomatopoeia and alliteration in their work.

Students have begun to develop great orientations for their stories and use paragraphs to group ideas.

Here are some of the alliterative sentences we have been working on. Some children were able to come up with their alliterative sentences by themselves and others needed a little help. We are going to keep working on our alliteration to develop our text writing.
