A Shoot of Corn Pack of 6 by Richard Brown


A Shoot of Corn Pack of 6 by Richard Brown

Suitable for children in Year 2 (age 6), A Shoot of Corn is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Narrative Recounts, a strand which motivates children to explore their personal responses and make links to their own experiences. Each story in this set of nine marks a significant event from someone's childhood. This is a true story about Richard Brown, which happened in 1958. In the village school that Richard used to go to as a boy, there was always a harvest festival. One year, Richard found some grains of corn. In the spring, he planted one in a jar and watched it grow into a beautiful shoot of corn. Narrative recounts also provide excellent models for children's own writing. This pack of 6 is for guided group reading.
