Year 2 are learning all about London this half term and they have been reading a story called Katie in London by James Mayhew. This is an excellent book which introduces the children to some of the famous landmarks in our city. In the story, Katie visits Trafalgar Square with her Granny and accidentally awakens one of the four lions that sit under Nelson’s Column. The lion takes Katie on a sight-seeing adventure across London. They visit many places including The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge and The London Eye. Year 2 have been enjoying writing their own versions of the story and have painted their own lions too.
As you can see, the children are already writing an impressive amount.
