Term 1: Enchanted Woodland - Hansel and Gretel
In class we have been reading the Michael Morpurgo version of Hansel and Gretel. We have been recapping and securing our knowledge of nouns, adjectives and verbs.
The new GPAS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) vocabulary we have learnt this term is 'expanded noun phrase'.
The children have been using these to write setting and character descriptions.
We have also been looking at text from the story to identify nouns and adjectives as well as improving parts of the story by adding adjectives to create expanded noun phrases within the text.
Some key vocabulary definitions and word mats to assist with your child's learning throughout Year 2 can be found below.
