Throughout our English lessons, we will be learning to do lots of different things! Everything that we learn will be done through the Talk4Writing process. This process involves the children learning a piece of text, adapting it and writing their own version.
We were very excited when we walked into the classroom on Monday morning where we found a crime scene! We found footprints, crime scene tape and an ID card. The classroom had been trashed and we had to work out what had happened! We used all of the clues and figured out that it must have been a stone giant! We then went to the hall and found a list of instructions written about 'How to Trap a Stone Giant'. We decided to learn these instructions so that we could trap him and we did! Then we had another problem...
Miss Rutherford received a visit from a water dragon! Miss Rutherford didn't worry though, because she knew that the children in Year 2 could adapt their instructions to trap the water dragon too. This is what we are currently working on.
Pictures to follow.
In Year 2 we have recently used the story 'Not Now Bernard'.
Bernard's got a problem. He's found a monster in the back garden but his mum and dad are just too busy to notice. So Bernard tries to befriend the monster… and that doesn't go quite to plan.
This is a fun story and the children are really enjoying the work which is based on the book.
Come back soon to see some of our text maps and to see us acting out the story.
