I've added some web sites to help you with the home learning from Friday ;-}
Literacy Learning – Fairytale Project
Hopefully now the children are nearing the completion of the story S or the story planner for the fairytale that they have chosen and are practising the story using actions. This should be practised several times daily in order that the children can positively answer the learning question:
- Can I tell a traditional tale orally?
- These links will take you to a story board which may give you some ideas for planning your story
- 1. this one is great
. 2 This one is good for an idea but don't just copy it!!
In addition to practising the story daily, the following activities could be completed. These activities give the children opportunities to practise additional skills whilst also embedding the story.
- They do not need to be completed in any particular order.
- Only one of these needs to be completed each day.
- Make a puppet to retell the story. (There are some ideas on Link & Learn for how this may be done.)
- Write a diary entry from one of the characters’ points of view.
- Produce a piece of artwork to show the story setting. This could be a collage, a painting, a drawing or other!
- Write a list of questions that you would like to ask one of the characters. Remember to use a question mark at the end of each question.
Click on the links below the learning question to take you to an activity.

Look back to earlier news updates on the Y2 webpage for earlier steps in learning that may have been missed.
Remember to email your child’s class teacher if you have any questions or queries. We are always happy to help clarify any uncertainties and provide extra support if necessary.
With thanks for your continued support,
