Welcome back. We hope you had a great weekend. Over the next week we will be making up our own story and finally writing it. But first we must Plan our story.

 

Characters

Today we will decide who is in our story- a character is an animal or a person in a story. Look at the characters in the picture do you know any of them? Who are your favourite characters. Think back to ‘World book day’ who did you come dressed as to school? Choose any 3 characters and write down their names. 

Mrs Shaikh has chosen three of her favourite characters

Draw a picture of your 3 chosen characters and write their names down.
