    Dear All,
    I was wondering what fiction books you use in year 2 to inspire writing.
    We used Oliver's Vegetables and Oliver's fruit in the Autumn along with the Little Red Hen.
    We then did a big theme of narrative writing using Julia Donaldson's books and it was amazing. My class loved it!
    I'm looking for books that will equally inspired them and fill them with joy!
    Thank you for your ideas! ☺️

    Look at Alan Peat's book 50 ways to use Cinderella. I think that's what it's called.

    On the way home, The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch and Traction Man are all good for Year 2.

    Thank you all!
    Are some of you using Power of Reading? I came across it this weekend but soon realised it's something a whole school must sign up too.
