Year 2 Horrid Henry writing challenge

Hi Year 2,

As you know, we are learning about a famous author called Francesca Simon. I know how much you all LOVE watching the Horrid Henry programmes so why not use this to help with our writing?!

Firstly: Watch the story below. You may remember it from our class novel!

Now I would like you to choose your favourite part of the story and re-write it.

Caterpillars – I would like to see capital letters and full stops used correctly.

Bees & Butterflies – I would like to see you use conjunctions and ! ? , .

Spiders & Ladybird – I would like to see you use speech marks (inverted commas) and interesting sentence openers.

You can either write the whole story or part of it – it is up to you! Make sure you post your stories on the blog. The best will get a prize!

Good luck!
