Year 2 Literacy Podcast

Year 2

Our main class reading book for this term will be The Enormous Turnip. We have spent the first week of the new spring term introducing the children to the characters and the main themes in the story. We are going to focus upon the story to help us improve our own vocabulary, learn new phrases and to understand the importance of putting connectives in our writing sentences.

The children are working towards re-writing The Enormous Turnip in their own words. We will also be acting out the story, and using connectives to help structure our stories. You can catch up with a couple of our Year 2 children explaining their first thoughts on the new class book in the podcast below.
