This half term Year 2 are reading the story ‘Coming Home’ by Michael Morpurgo. It is an exciting adventure story about a brave little robin’s long journey home battling through storms, oceans and terrifying hawk attacks. During the half term we will be writing non chronological reports about robins, diary writing from different characters perspectives and retelling scenes using exciting verbs. In line with Talk for Writing, we will be retelling the story using actions and phrases before innovating the story and changing different elements to create our own narrative.

Here is a video of author Michael Morpurgo telling the story:
