                                              Good Morning Reception 


Hi Reception,


Did you manage to complete all of your challenges yesterday? 




How did you get on with your story map? 


Today you are going to use your story map to write the story in your own words. 

Tricky, but I know you can do it!

Remember to use your magic tool bag to help you and stretch out those words. 


I wonder if anyone can have a go on their own without their

grown-ups help?




I would like you to try to write all of the story 

Start with 

One day ..... then use your pictures and write about them and retell the story. 


Monkeys and Elephants

Your tricky challenge is to write a sentence for each picture below that will retell the beginning, middle and end of the story. 

Remember your magic tool bag to help you and stretch out those words to hear your sounds. 



I have also added a word document below with the images on for you if you prefer.




Toucans and Leopards

Your tricky challenge is to look at the pictures below and write a sentence about it with your grown-up.

Remember get your grown-up to help you stretch the word and write down the sounds you hear.  




Have a good morning.
