Grammar 

2A sentences are also known as expanded noun phrases. Year 2 have been using these in their descriptions and know that you must use 2 adjectives and a comma in between. For example; The dog had a cold, wet nose.

 

Similes are also used when describing. These sentence types add extra detail to our sentences by comparing and also use adjectives. For example; He raced off as fast as a lion. or He raced off like a lion. 

Geography

Earlier on in the year we started to look at human and physical features in geography and we explored what features we can see in Stoke on Trent. Using the Katie Morag stories compare and contrast the Isle of Struay to Trentham. How does life differ for Katie? What is life like on the island for her? Please see below for some activities to complete at home.

Activity 1 – What is on the Isle of Struay

Activity 2 – Isle of Struay buildings

Activity 3 – Katie Morag Grid referencing    &   Isle of Struay Co-ordinates Map
