Year 2 Sparkly Self-Tying Shoelaces text map

Year 2 have been practising tying shoelaces.  Even though we all tried to help each other with tips and tricks we knew, it was really tricky!



So we thought we would invent a shoe tying machine.  The children were very creative and spent time with their partner explaining how their inventions would work and  improving their ideas.

Next the children were introduced to our new text map “The sparkly self-tying shoelaces”, which is a persuasive text to encourage other children to buy this incredible new invention.  

Tomorrow we will start to learn the text map with actions.  Then over the next three weeks, the children will be immersed in the language and structure, before finally writing a persuasive text for their own invention.
