Year 2 will be doing lots of sentence construction this term. We will be focusing on using correct punctuation to construct our sentences, including using full stops, commas in a list, question marks and exclamation marks. We will also be revisiting expanded noun phases, looking at how we can use these to make our sentences more interesting. There will also be a big push on spelling this term, looking at Year 2 high frequency and common exception words. Hopefully towards the end of the term, we will be looking at “The Tiger Child” as our class text in English. This lively folk tale from Orissa, India, explains why Tigers eat their food uncooked and why cats live with people. The Tiger child is sent to fetch some more fire from the village, but on the way he gets distracted by his friends. We will be using our class text to create a non-chronological report about Tigers.
