Year 2 have had a wonderful experience in the first week of our Literacy unit, ‘The Lonely Beast’ by Chris Judge. Before we read the story the children were given a picture of the beast in the city with people running away and they acted out this scene. The following day we read the story and we realised that he was a friendly creature, but he did not have any friends. He decided to go on a journey to see who he could find. We have explored adjectives to describe the beast’s appearance and feelings. Watch out for our stories next week, now that we have created our very own beasts!
