Journey Stories

Year 2 have had an exciting half term in English making up their own journey stories based on ‘ The way back home’ . We looked at a range of journey stories and found what the features were of this type of story .The children learnt what an expanded noun phrase was and then used these to describe the characters they had made up for their own stories. They learnt the story map off by heart and added actions, which they loved performing . The children then became authors and wrote their own story using their new story map and new characters.
