In Literacy the children will build on using adjectives to write descriptive sentences. They will look at what makes a good friend. They will write an invitation to another year 2 class, explaining

  • What makes them special?
  • Why they are a good friend?
  • Why would the other class want to meet them?

The children will end the week reading with a buddy from the class they invited. At home can you make a list of adjectives describing a good friend?
