In Year 2, we LOVE to READ!

Whether it's your favourite story, books from school, magazines and reading a story together every day, reading is SUPER important! We love to hear about all the books you are reading. Why don't you write a book review and inspire other children to read a book? You can find a useful book review template at the bottom of this page...

At St Francis Xavier, we love to READ!

On the 14th September 2020, we celebrated Roald Dahl Day!

Roald Dahl Day!

To celebrate Roald Dahl Day as well as promote a love of reading, Year 2 have been learning all about ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’.


We created our very own marvellous medicine, inspired by George’s medicine from the story! Before we started, we looked at lots of different ingredients and used our imaginations to decide what they could be…


We worked hard to write a set of informative instructions which told us, step by step, how to make the medicine. We came up with some fantastic, ambitious adjectives to describe it and hook the readers in! Also, we talked about expanded noun phrases, punctuation and time adverbials and had a go at using them in our writing.

Take a look at what we got up to on Roald Dahl Day...
