As you listen to our music today, remember that you are not alone. You are lovely, you are loveable and you are loved!
Making a story map is a way of retelling the story. It is a graphic means of breaking a story down into episodes and sequencing its events. This kind of graphic representation helps children to hold on to the shape of the story more confidently so they can re-tell it orally or in writing. Children can also make story maps as a form of planning, to prepare for their own writing.
Today you will map out the story.
Watch the story in the video below:
- Orally retell the story to somebody or yourself, establishing the main events in the correct order as the story unfolds.
- Think about:
- Introducing the characters and how they came to be together
- How their friendship grew in adversity
- The tensions that the introduction of the fox created and how this shifted the dynamic
- The isolation and pain caused by the separation for all three characters
- The hopeful yet tainted note upon which it ends
- Swiftly story map out the key events on a piece of paper using pictures to recall the story.
- Now retell the story using your map, recalling key phrases from the book as you do so and adding these alongside the drawings on your story map.
Remember you do not have to copy out all of the questions, especially if they use complicated diagrams.
Your answers and any workings out are enough.
