Once upon a time there was a boy called Big Blue Bouncing Beanie...

In two weeks time, we will have had fun with the story about Little Red Riding Hood. We are going to act out and write our own version. It  will be our own story, with our own characters. We will keep the big, bad wolf in the story. Do you remember all that lovely descriptive work you did for the Wolf’s Character Description? That's going to come in handy! We will also think of our own setting (where and when the story takes place): forest, city, mountain, seaside  or even in Hanley Swan! Is it Spring, Summer, Winter or Autumn?    

In our story the character will go on a journey to visit a relative. The purpose could be to take a bowl of magic porridge or some Little Red Hen bread rolls.   

 

Before we get carried away though, we need to plan our story so that it is good. We have

 all week,  so don’t worry. 

Today, we are going to think about the main character in our story. Nothing else

 only our main character.

 

Talk to an adult about who you want in your story. Is it a man, boy, girl, lady, a pixie, fairy

 or is it even an animal? Remember this character will meet the wolf!

 

Draw your character, name your character and then write 4/5 words to describe your character. Do you remember that these words are called 'adjectives'?

 

Use ideas from the stories from yesterday or just use your imagination!

It was a wet and windy Wednesday on the beach...

Today, we are going to look at the setting. This is where and when your story is set.

 

Think about the day your story is set. What season is it? What is the weather like?

 

Now we are going to think where you would like your story to take place.

This could be a forest, city, countryside, seaside, mountain, village etc.

 

Can you draw a beautiful picture of your setting? Try and add in as much detail as you can.

 

If you get time, on the back of your picture write a few good words (4/5) that describe your setting.

Big Blue Bouncing Beanie's Great Uncle Bert had run out of magic purple porridge!

What a lot  we have thought about already! We are sure that your ideas will be fabulous and we are looking forward to seeing them.

 

 

Today, we are going to think why your character is going to visit a relative. However, first we need to think of the relative. This could be a Grandma, Grandad, Mum, Dad, brother, sister, cousin, Uncle or Aunt. Any relative is fine.

 

Now, let’s think about why we are going to visit. A good reason could be to take some porridge to make them feel better or as a thoughtful gift, as you know how to make it, or you could take some freshly baked bread, made from the tall golden corn, like in The Little Red Hen.

 

Can you draw a picture and label it with the relative and the reason for visiting them?

 

Now hunt out the work you did on the Big Bad Wolf during the 'Three Little Pigs' topic? You will need to think about all the lovely words that you wrote to describe how he looks, moves and acts.

Let's Map out our story.

Today is our final day of planning our story. We are going to bring all of our work together and draw and label a story map.  A story map is a selection of pictures and words that tell your story. Each picture will represent the key events in your story. Remember, we are drawing a map of your story. The map will include your character, your setting, your relative and reason for travelling to see them and of course their encounter with the Big bad Wolf. You will also have to think about what will happen when your character meets the Big Bag Wolf at the relatives house...

Below are some examples of how you can present your story map. There are a few you may recognise from previous stories that we have covered. You can be as creative as you want with your story map. When it is finished, can you tell an adult what is happening in your story?

 

I am looking forward to seeing and hearing your stories on Monday.
