Have a go at retelling 'Where the Wild Things Are' just like Pie Corbett does with the 'Little Red Hen'. Remember to follow your story map.


4. Check to see if you have used all your great vocabulary for your own word bank. 


Padlock challenge: Record a little of your retelling to share with us all. 


Day 3 – Role-play  

  1. Practice retelling your story to somebody at home or record it to show a friend. Miss Fancy and Miss Benwell are happy to pass some stories on to a friend or post it on our whole class story. 
  2. Once you know the story quite well have a go at acting it out. Maybe you could ask your family to help? Remember we normally spend a long time at school practicing and acting out the stories we learn. So have some fun and take your time to learn the story. 
  3. Next week we will have a look at some SPaG skills we are going to need to help to retell this story. We will also look at how we can describe the setting and the characters.
