Wednesday and Thursday

Your challenge for the next two days is to write your own version of 'The Little Red Hen' to share with your friends in your class. 

You can change:

1. the main character from a hen to a ____


   the three characters that interact with your main character

2. you can change the loaf of bread/cake to a ____

3. are you going to share your finished product with your animals?


  • Think of what type of personality to give your main character
  • Create your story map to make sure that your story flows.




Today you are going to edit and proof read your story to make sure that it flows and is easy for you to read and share.

Once you have completed your editing why not illustrate your story to add to audience appeal.


I look forward to hearing all your stories on your return to school.
