Year 2 begins with a trio of texts connected with the theme of starting over and the challenges this can present, whatever your age! Links can be made to relationships education (families and people who care for me) and history - Ancient Rome. Resources to support children in making connections between the texts can be found in the ‘pulling it all together’ pack, as can a suggested list of books also linked to the theme, which could be read as a class.

Once you have gone through all three texts with pupils, establishing familiarity and understanding with each, you can use these additional resources to help children engage with them thematically, making links between the texts, and to others they may have read or heard of. A suggested list of books for class reading, linked to the unit theme, is also included.
