Talk for Writing home booklet by Emma Caulfield and Pie Corbett. 


Hello Y2,


This year, I know how much you have enjoyed reading a new story, creating a story map with actions, re-telling the story and then changing parts of it to create your own story. You did some fantastic pieces of work like this for Jack and the Beanstalk and The Firebird. Emma Caulfield has created a home learning booklet with some great reading and writing activities which I have attached below. You can work through these activities over time maybe one or two a day. I know some of you don't have access to a printer but you can still complete the activities in your green exercise book. Just make sure to include the long date and title 'English' at the top underlined. I hope you enjoy these activities :) 


Keep safe and keep smiling :)
