Over the last couple of weeks, the children in Year 2 have been working hard to improve their writing, in our Talk for Writing unit, Extended Stories. The children began by learning the story The Magic Finger off by heart (imitation), both in class and as homework. They then began to edit and change different parts of the story (innovation). This week the children have begun to plan and write their own stories (invention), in which the main character accidentally puts a magic spell on someone which results in them waking up with a part of an animal’s body instead of their own! As you can see from the pictures, the children have loved this unit and have been working very hard to make themselves better than they were the day before.
