Year 2 have had a wonderful experience during 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. We have created our very own beasts and wrote stories about their journey to find the lonely beast. Have a read of the stories below. Happy reading!
