LO: I can draw inferences from a text.

Freeze Frame

Today we began to explore our new book ‘The Lonely Beast’. We had a look at an image from the book and tried hard to say what we thought was going on and why we thought that. We looked very carefully at the picture to help us, making sure we looked at the expressions on people’s faces to help us. We then had a go at creating the scene in small groups, freezing in their positions. We had lots of fun imagining what the different characters were thinking and saying and cannot wait to read the story.

News Reports

For today’s lesson, we made our very own news broadcasts. To start the lesson we discussed what happens on a news report and had a look at some examples such as ‘News Round’. We talked about the type of roles that are needed during a news broadcast such as the news room anchor, the interviewer and the guests. We then got into groups and made our own broadcasts about the lonely Beast and his remarkable journey from the mountains to the city in search of friendship. They children did a fantastic job and really took their roles seriously. They thought of some excellent questions and answers as well as some fantastic introductions from our newsroom anchors.

Newspaper Reports


Extra, Extra, Read All About It! Year 2 become fantastic feature spotters!!

This week we are focussing on Newspaper Reports. Today we had the opportunity to explore and learn about Newspapers. We discussed when and why they are used and how they are very different to stories. We then had the chance to learn about some of the important features that are included in newspapers and finally put our new skills to the test. We had a go identifying some features in our own articles and were very successful!
