It's simple really: English grammar can be a very dry subject, but this need not be the case. For a few years now, I have been developing a games-based approach to teaching important grammar concepts. It is amazing how the introduction of dice takes the learning into a new place - the element of chance making it seem less like work and more like play. Because I test my games extensively in the classroom, I get a feel for what works. Dump your boring worksheets and start dicing with grammar.

Three weeks of creative and fully resourced Year 2 Talk for Writing planning involving drama, reading skills (information retrieval and then inference), poetry, grammar skills, drawing, diary writing and story writing. Each lesson is fully resourced and differentiated - there is also a focus on greater depth opportunities. To get the most from this writing project, it would be useful if the class had access to a copy of ‘The Tear Thief’ by Carol Ann Duffy - a magical picture book. If you buy this unit, PLEASE USE THE ZIP FOLDER - everything you need is in there. Each session is organised into a separate folder. The other files are simply there as a preview to show some of the resources included.

Over the three weeks, the following Y2 objectives are thoroughly covered:

Grammar
• I can say and write a sentences with a capital letter and a full stop
• I can use different joining words (conjunctions) to join my ideas
• I can use carefully chosen adjectives/expanded noun phrases
• I can use an apostrophe to show ownership

Reading
• I can spot meaning breakdowns
• I can visualise a character from a story
• I can find information in a story
• I can read like a detective (inference)

Composition
• I can retell a story in sentences
• I can add a new part to a story I know
• I can create a character
• I understand how a story can be organised
• In my own writing, I can use words and ideas from a story I have read
• I can write a story (using the skills I have been learning)

This unit could be easily adapted for use in other year groups.
