Help your child create a story map to help them retell the story. Below, is a modelled version but we encourage the children to come up with their own ideas for pictures if they can.
Stick to key parts of the story and ensure there are no more than 10 steps. Use the map to retell the story, ensuring that events are in the right order.
Play ideas: Use chalk to write numbers to 20 outside or use water and paint the numbers outside on the floor.
Topic: Pick a challenge from the home learning grid on the class page.
