Year 2 and 3 Narrative: Mixed-age planning
This is the second of four narrative units for Year 2 with the inclusion of Year 3 objectives to support mixed age groups.
The unit has two alternative outcomes. The children can work towards their own written version of a traditional narrative or create a digital text combining words, images and sounds using presentation software.
Extension for Year 3 pupils includes the increased development and more precise use of effective vocabulary to create impact for the reader and building text cohesion through the use of connectives.
Progression in Years 2 and Year 3
In their own reading, children will become more aware of meanings beyond the literal and will being to make inferences independently. Opportunities for role play will enable children to empathise with characters and see things from the point of view of others.
As children become more aware of the needs of the reader, teachers will need to help children consider the ways in which to guide the reader to follow events, and how the use of connectives supports this.
