This term Year 2 have been studying the author Oliver Jeffers. He has written and illustrated lots of wonderful, imaginative books such as 'How to Catch a Star' and 'Lost and Found'.
We started this author study by looking at all the different books Oliver Jeffers has written and discussed what we liked and disliked about them.
We then focused on 'How to Catch a Star' and wrote our own amazing versions of this story. We also wrote lovely, creative star poems using similes and interesting vocabulary.
We have also created 'Found' posters based on the story 'Lost and Found'. Amazingly, a penguin turned up at our door too! We discussed how it might have got there and why.
We all know the story of the three little pigs, but have you ever wondered what the true story is?
2L have been reading 'The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka. This story is the story of Alexander T Wolf (a.k.a The Big Bad Wolf). Alexander T Wolf claims that blowing the 3 Little Pigs' houses down was all an accident so we decided to find out the truth.
2L became detectives. We looked at all the evidence of both stories and wrote a letter to Chief Inspector Dogood explaining what we found out.
