St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another



Summer 2 The children have been reading A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. They have really enjoyed it and love reading each chapter to see what happens. They especially liked to chapter where Puck put a spell on Nick Bottom and he had the head of a donkey!

Year 2 are learning to write Non Chronological Reports and Explanation Texts.  To do this, they will use the theme of Dinosaurs and Mary Anning.

Mary Anning

Year 2 learnt how Mary Anning had to be patient when she was extracting fossils from the chip at a time.

Spring 2
This half-term, we are reading The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.  The children read the first chapter where we meet Mole and Rat.  They drew Mole and Rat rowing a boat down the river.

The Wild Wood where Mole imagined that the trees had faces.

Mole meets Rat and they go for a row on the river.

We have been looking at stories by the same author and have enjoyed reading 'The Enchanted Wood' by Enid Blyton.


The children designed their own woods and wrote some amazing descriptions.  They also designed a giant who lived underneath Rocking Land and tried to tip everyone off his land.

We are Giants...hiding underneath the ground, imagining how it would feel to be the Giant.

The children have been writing lots of letters and they have written to Tom Heaton wishing him a speedy recovery. Here are some photos of Tom with our letters and one of his favourite books, The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. We also got some lovely photos of Nick Pope thanks to Mrs Townley.

Here are some of the pictures that the children designed and sent with their letters to Tom Heaton.


(Inspired by the Animation on the Literacy Shed)

The children watched a few seconds from a short animation film called The Lighthouse.  From this, they used their writing skills to describe the Lighthouse Keeper and the setting of the Lighthouse.  They had to show progress in their letter formation, punctuation and focus on using commas in a list.  The children then wrote some questions to the Lighthouse Keeper and then took it in turns to ask and answer questions.  Some of the children were hot seated and were brilliant at answering the questions.

The children have been reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage. They have written letters to the author and drawn these amazing pictures.
