Good morning Year One, and welcome back to a Terrific Thursday! laugh


Today, we are continuing with our story 'Jabuti the Tortoise' by Gerald McDermott. Please re-familarise yourself if you need to do so... 

Today's task: 

LO: To write a story using a story map.

Success Criteria:

I can sequence a story.  

I can use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

I can show good handwriting.

I can use conjunctions to make my sentences extend.

I can use adjectives and descriptive language to make my story more interesting.


Today you are going to be writing the story, using the story map to support you. However, we would like you to do this slowly and properly, that is why today you are going to be focusing on your ending. You should have wrote half of your story yesterday, so today you get to finish it! .


Remember to include all of your 'story ingredients' to make your story fun and interesting to read.


Have you included...  

- capital letters, full stops and finger spaces?  

- handwriting with tall ascenders, low descenders and nice normal letters? 

- lots of adjectives and descriptive language? (It makes your work super interesting!) 

- conjunctions that extend your sentences (e.g. because, and, so... )
