(I keep posting - need to get out more!) Anyway, I'm under great pressure to move my Yr2 class on this year ( and so I've gone right back to basics as this was where the gaps were (phonics, basic punctuation, sentence construction etc etc). Things are slowly improving which is great but do need constant work - my question is which units do you think I could drop for Yr 2 to give me time to do this? On the list for this year are narrative writing, patterned poetry, instructions, explanations, information texts, non-chronological reports. This last has to be done - SATs. I've done some narrative work and instructions but am really struggling with choosing the best units to help them move on. We are studying polar regions and I'd LOVE to use Lost and Found about the penguin as I think they'd respond and writing would be great - but it's more narrative. What do others think?
