Active Literacy

This week, we ventured outside to have an Active Literacy lesson. The weather was a little miserable, but that didn’t stop us from having an awesome time.

Miss Varley has put some of the Y2 Common Exception Words around the MUGA pitch and we had to work together in pairs to read the words and then write them down on our sheet. The first pair to complete their sheet were the winners.

If you’d like to practice reading more of the Y2 Common Exception Words at home or make up your game, have a look at the words below.

Superstar Writers of the Week – Autumn 1 – Week 4 & 5

Wow! What fantastic writers we have in Pearl class!


Our Week 4 winner is trying so incredibly hard to use his phonics to write down the words that he wants to use. Keep up this amazing work!

Our Week 5 winner is another superstar who is trying amazingly hard to use the correct sounds when he is writing his words.

The adults in Pearl class are so proud of the effort you are both putting in. Keep it up!

Superstar Writer of the Week

In 2017, we have a brand new award to share with everyone. Every week, the teachers in Pearl class are going to choose someone who has excelled in their writing that week.

Well done to our first winner. You get to take a special superstar writer pencil home with you to help you to continue your super writing at home.


Just look at how smiley our first winner is. You have tried so hard in your topic book this week to make sure that your handwriting is joined, legible and neat. Keep up the hard work! 🙂
