Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Class Text

Autumn 1

This half term, our texts will be a whole school approach. 'The Wonder Garden and 'There's a Rang-Tan in my bedroom'. 


The Wonder Garden is a beautifully illustrated book which allows its readers to 'wander through five habitats to discover eighty amazing animals.

The book entices children and adults alike through the golden gates on the cover and into the wondrous garden that is planet Earth.  From deserts, rainforests and mountains to oceans we are met by double spread after double spread of richly illustrated landscapes and beautifully drawn creatures.

In Year 2 we will be specifically looking at the Great Barrier Reef.


'There's a Rang-Tan in my bedroom' will raise children's consciousness about conservation and will link with our Chester Zoo project. 

Autumn 2 

This half term the children will focus on the 'Tin Forest'. Throughout this term the children will make predictions on the text whilst exploring the similarities and differences between the two forests. During this text the children will focus on genres such as setting descriptions, narratives and newspaper articles. 

Spring 1

This half term we will be focusing on the book 'Gorilla'. This book is an endearing story about a little girl whose father never has time for her. She wishes for a (real) gorilla for her birthday but gets a soft toy one from her father. Not being too pleased about this she tosses it aside before going to bed where it changes into a real live one during the night. Throughout this text the children will be exposed to genres such as character descriptions and diary entries.
