What a lovely idea - I just had to share....

In DTDs book bag today was the

"Year 2 report"

It is essentially a "newspaper" their class have put together.

There are 16 pages, each talking about a different event during the year - school trips, sports days, plays, major topic areas....

On each page is a short report by 2 children, along with 2 pitures.

I just thought it was a fabulous memory of the year. Simply done. Like a little year book that can be kept.

It is something that could be done (to some depth) by any year group. FABULOUS.

I think that's a great idea

and I'd find out if indeed it IS the case that they do nothing at ds' school - when they DO do stuff, they stick with boring stuff apparently

His yr 1 paper would include 16 pages of "today we didn't do anything with the kids, oh except some boring stuff, y'know, literacy an' that"

page 2 "in May we went on a school trip to a museum which was VERY disappointing cos it had nothing to DO with Star Wars".

Poor ds. School just doesn't do it for him

LO HG...

It was almost weepy inducing for me though...and I am sure there are some children in teh class who had to be dictated to..."we went to xyz and (inseted by teacher: had fun looking) looked at the old stones"

yes seriously it does sound a good idea, I can imagine it would be really touching. And lovely to have as a reminder of this stage!

I am so pleased with it I am going to feed back to teh teacher.

They don't (to my knowledge) do it throughout the school but they should (maybe I shoudl feed back to head?).

the first page was a little prologue by teh teacher which was (a little cheesy but) sweet.

"they have been a wonderful class, I will miss them next year, won't recognise them next year blah, blah, blah.."
