Meerkat Mail

Year 2 have enjoyed studying Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett.

  
It’s a lovely story full of adventure and finding out that the grass isn’t always greener!

Firstly, we all worked as a team to create a class story map so we could learn the text. We challenged ourselves and added some key story language to the map. This is a class target at the minute to use a variety of sentence openers in story writing.

  
We used a key to identify different text features on the map.

Once we had learned the text, we were ready to innovate. Throughout the innovation process Year 2 showed outstanding engagement and commitment to their learning.

We created an innovated story called Meerkat Supermarket. Sunny the meerkat went on a trip around the supermarket to find the perfect place to live. Using our innovated map we then wrote the story.

  
It was so impressive to see Year 2 show determination and perseverance when writing their sustained story piece. The outcome was fabulous. Keep an eye out to see their terrific writing!
