Fables

This week in Grade 2 we are learning about Fables. Fables are short stories with a lesson to be learnt – this is called a ‘Moral‘. They are a kind of narrative which have been around for a long time and many people have re-written their own versions. iIn fact, we are writing our own versions of “Town Mouse and Country Mouse” right now!

Here are the ‘Bee’ and ‘Beetle’ literacy groups reading “The Lion and the Mouse” and “The Ant and the Grasshopper“.

Fairy Tales

This week we have been learning about the genre of ‘Fairy Tales’ – made up stories which are usually written for children and contain magical elements.

Today we explored our understanding of the well-known characters from Fairy Tales, and challenged ourselves to think creatively about their actions within the stories. We made ‘WANTED’ posters for a character of our choice – we certainly are creative!

Here are a few that were finished today.
