Year 2

Hi year 2s and parents,


  1. Can we remember what an adjective is? (a word that describes a noun or a thing)
  2. We have been looking at superlative adjectives eg biggest, scruffiest etc. Can you think of 10 of your own and write them in a list? Be imaginative and think of unusual ones, but they have to be real and try to spell them correctly!
  3. Firstly today we are going to think about exceptions. Try and learn these below and get your parents to test you:
    1. good - better - best
    2. bad - worse - worst
    3. many - more- most
    4. much - more - most
    5. little - less - least
    6. far - further - furthest
  4. Now you can watch the story of The Smartest Giant in Town (see below). Can you think of a story based on a superlative adjective eg. it could be the tiniest ......., the funniest ....., the bravest .... etc. ? I want you to think of a story where something happens and your character gets eg tinier until it is the tiniest eg fish in the sea or taller until she is the tallest girl in the school etc. Now make a story plan by creating a story map. It needs a beginning, three things that happen and a good ending. Why does your character change? Did they take a magic potion or make a wish or were they tricked? Remember to think where the story is taking place and who the main characters are. You can draw your story map as we have done many times before using arrows between the events. Parents here is an example of one done for Little Red Riding Hood, to give you some idea.
  5. When you are happy with your story, use your story map to 'read' it to your parents.
