English

Your naughty toy has been found! The newspapers want you to create a newspaper report for them to publish explaining what has happened.  Think again about the following questions:

What have they done?

When did they do it?

Why might they have done it?

Who else was involved?

Did anyone see them?

Get your plan out so that you can refer to it whilst writing. Read back the work that you did yesterday so you don’t repeat yourself. Maybe tick off the sections of your plan you have already done. Carry on writing your newspaper report.

Can you include any of the following Year 2 skills:

  • Question
  • Exclamation (remember they start with how or what eg How terrible this news is!)
  • Commas in a list (Eg The egg thief had fluffy fur, evil eyes, floppy ears and a pink basket.)
  • Conjunctions (and, but, or, so, because, if, when)

What do animals need to survive?

Do animals need the same things as humans to survive? Discuss together also thinking about the following:

  • A cage to stop them escaping?
  • A lead to keep them safe?
  • Special treats when they are good?
  • Grooming to keep them looking nice?

Draw the template shown below onto a sheet of paper. In the middle circle draw a picture of an animal.

It could be a pet you have at home or your favourite animal (as long as you know what they need to survive). In the middle circle draw things that the animal needs to survive. In the outer circle draw things that the animal might like to have for a happy life.
