Year 2 English

This term in English we are exploring the difference between fiction and non-fiction texts. We have sorted books based on their characteristics: front cover, pictures, what the pages look like inside and whether the books have a contents page or glossary!

Year 2 are using a text about pirates to help us learn about non-fiction writing. We each looked at a non-fiction page from a book and found all the features that show us it’s a page of ‘facts’ – who knew there were so many clues on one page! We ended the week by starting to map our own Pirate writing, thinking about sub-headings and wow facts.
