Week beginning 20th April 2020

This week we would like you to watch the story of Katie Morag and the Big Boy Cousins. It is available on YouTube. Please click on the link below.

We would like you to write your own story this week using the Katie Morag book as your starting point. In school we have written stories before and we often start by making a story map which can be done on a piece of plain paper. This will help your child to work out the sequence of events in the story. Below is an example of what a story map might look like.               

  

                                              

When you have done this it is then time to think of your own story ideas! We normally, in school, choose one element to change, so it could be that different people come to visit or that they do something else that is a bit cheeky! It might be that your child wants to change lots of things-please let them as this is showing their growing creativity and confidence. Once you have chatted about your ideas we use a story mountain to plan our own stories. Use the template below to help you plan.

 

When you have finished your plan you are ready to start your story! Please remember we would normally take a week in school to build up to writing the story, so take your time and do it in small steps. We would love to read your stories, so if you would like to email them into school Mrs Gill, Mrs Ogden and myself would be very excited to receive them. Alternatively you could video yourself reading your story or acting out your ideas and post them on our Facebook page for all the teachers to see.
