Mental Health Week Writing in Year 2

In Year 2 we have been delving into the book called The Lion Inside. We have discussed the feelings of the mouse and lion and how important it is to recognise that we might feel like both of them sometimes and that’s OK. If we ever feel like the mouse we can always try ways of finding our inner “roar”!

First we planned our story retelling using a story mountain to encourage us to include a beginning, middle and an end.

Then we retold the story. Some of us extended ourselves to use more than one adjective in a sentence. Some of us also aimed to use time and place sentence openers to give the reader more detail. Most importantly we entertained the reader and taught them the moral of our story!
