Autumn 1 Unit - Story with a character Focus
This half term in Year 2, we will be focusing on the story 'Troll Swap' and using this as our stimulus for our writing sessions. The final outcome is for the children to write a story based on the model text but using their own ideas for characters.
We will look at the features and the common structure of a story, with a beginning, middle and an end. Also within this unit the children will look at using full stops and capital letters correctly to form their sentences and use expanded noun phrases (2A sentences) to describe settings and characters. They will also learn how to use subordinating (because) and coordinating (and) conjunctions to extend their setences.
