Year 2 are UK experts!

Year 2 have been using all the fantastic facts they have learnt about the UK to write a non-chronological report all about the 4 countries of the UK. They used subheadings, list sentences, facts and captions to make sure they included all the correct features. We were so impressed with the amazing pride the children took in their work to produce such brilliant double page spreads. Each day they recalled the facts they had learnt about each country and wrote a paragraph to show all they had learnt.

After finishing their double page spreads, the children peer-assessed each other’s work. They found two things in their partner’s writing that was successful and one area that needed improvement. The children discussed with each other what they had found and made appropriate edits. You can see how the children used the sheet to complete this activity in the book below.
