Writing to Inform

This term, Year 2 have been learning about informative texts.

There are many language features that can help us to improve our writing, including:

  • verbs (e.g. jump, run)
  • adverbs (e.g. quickly, slowly, fast, beautifully)
  • prepositions (e.g. on, in, beside, beneath, upon)
  • time connectives (e.g. directly after, following that, next)

Take a look at the clips below that we have watched in class.

 

Click here to play a game about adverbs and here to play a game about prepositions.

Can you leave a sentence using some of the language features we have learnt about so far?

    Dear Year Two,

    We have being learning about adverbs which describe the verb, and last term we learnt about nouns, which are a person, place or thing. Last term we learnt about ajectives, which describe the noun.

    Examples:

    I lowered carefully the hot kettle and poured the steaming tea into my yellow cup.
    I patted gently my fluffy pet while it was sleeping peacefully.

    Kind Regards,

    D.I.
