Day 1
 
English - 'Little Red and The Very Hungry Lion' by Alex T. Smith
 
Listen to the story by following the link below.  Then talk to your grown-up about another story that it reminds you of. 
 
Draw a grid on a piece of paper and on one side write some of the things that are the same about the two stories, on the other some things that are different.
Which version do you prefer?  Why?
 
 
Day 2
 
English - Sequence a story.
 
Listen to our story again.  Choose three or four of your favourite parts and make a comic strip of them.  Make sure you put them in the right order!  Write some sentences to tell the parts of the story that you chose.
We have put an example of what your comic strip might look like below.  You could draw your pictures.
 
  
Day 3
 
English - Retell a story orally.
 
If you would like to you can listen to the story again today.  Once you have done this click on the links below to find a shortened version of the story and a story map.  Practise relling the story out loud to yourself, your grown-up or even your teddy. 
 
If you have been in school recently we will have learnt some actions to go with the story that you could use.

Day 5
 
English - Change a story to make a new version.
 
Use the story map and short version of our story to retell the story orally.  Practise any parts that you find tricky to remember.
 
Draw your own story map using ours as a guide but change two or three things (the main character, the lion and one of the features of the auntie - nightie, teeth, hair) so that it makes a new version that is your very own.  We have included an example below.
 
 
Day 6
 
English - to write the beginning of your story.
 
Use your new story map to retell your story orally and then write the beginning of your story, using the sentences you said while you told it.

English - to write the end of your story.
 
Use your new story map to retell your story orally and then write the end of your story, using the sentences you said while you told it.

Day 8
 
English - to read your story to an audience.
 
Read your completed story through and check that it makes sense.  Then ask somebody in your family if you can read it to them.  It doesn't have to be somebody in your house, maybe you could video call a grandparent or an auntie or uncle.
