Hi Year 2
Today is the last day of term.
Next week will be a week off where you and the grown up who have been helping you can relax and have fun!
Here are today’s learning activities.

English – Writing
Today you are going to edit your letter writing from yesterday.
Read your writing back.
Have you included:
- Capital letters
- Full Stops
- Finger Spaces
- Question Mark – if you have included a question
- Who it is written to
- Opening Sentence
- All of the ideas on your plan/ideas sheet

Using a different colour pencil/pen (like a school with our purple pens), go back through your writing and see what you have included and what you can improve.
Remember editing is to make your work go from being good to amazing. It doesn’t mean you ‘got things wrong’ but that it helps you remember the details for next time
