The Slightly Annoying Elephant - Year 2 Literacy
When a big, blue, bossy elephant turns up uninvited at Sam's house his world is turned upside down! David Walliam's hilarious story about a slightly annoying elephant will interest and engage children of all ages. This resource is a three week literacy plan for Year 2 using Curriculum 2014 objectives. A copy of ‘The Slightly Annoying Elephant’ is needed to teach alongside these planning materials: literacy plan, power point, publisher resources, word resources. Over the three weeks the following areas are covered: week 1 – prediction of story, characters descriptions, setting description. Week 2 – speech, letter, diary writing. Week 3 – report, planning and writing own version of the story. An Independent writing opportunity is planned for each week. NOTE: Due to copyright restrictions I have not included pictures from the text in the resources. However I have noted in the planning when this would be necessary.
