Making Connections - Year 2 Greater Depth Reading

This resource is perfect for YR2 teachers, it is a set of activity cards which can be used in any KS1 classroom. The cards have the opportunity for children to make links between books (this could be; characters, settings, events in the story, author, writing style and more). The resource encourages children to be independent and chose their own links between the texts - it may be different to peers or the adults.
Gruffalo and Little Red Riding Hood link because:

  • Both are set in the forest
  • Both have scary hairy creatures in them
  • Both include someone trying to play a trick/joke
  • Both include a character walking through the woods - the list could go on…

This activity is open ended and suitable for all learners, the link will always be correct as long as the children are able to explain and give suitable reasons.

The books in these sheets are all KS1 suitable books and some which KS1 children will be familiar with.

This includes an example card and a guidance for teacher cards. The activity cards would be excellent evidence for the TAF check in Year 2 as well.
SEE LINK TO TAF 2018/19: • make links between the book they are reading and other books they have read.
