Getting straight into their literacy topic, Year 2 have been immersing themselves in ‘The Lonely Beast’. It’s a story about an isolated monster who is simply trying to make friends. Focusing on past tense verbs, the children re-enacted the beast’s journey as he searched for others like him. They crossed a dangerous river, climbed down a high cliff, jumped off a giant waterfall, crept through a dark cave and swam in the sea with friendly dolphins. The teachers were delighted with the writing that was produced.
