In class, to help us learn a story before writing it, we create a story map. A story map is a series of pictures in a sequence to tell the story. To prepare our stories using our own characters, can you draw a story map? You can follow the Meerkat Mail story line closely (with the only difference being your new character) or change as much of it as you want. It will probably take you a few days as you'll want to take your time so that you don’t miss out any important parts of your story.
Continue to create your story map using pictures. Once you’ve finished, you may want to add key words over the top. Include ones that you will use when writing your story up.

Alternatively, the Department for Education are continuing to release content on their home learning portal. Lessons are provided from Monday to Friday and last about an hour. The lessons are easy to use and even come with a video. If you want to take part, you can use the link below.
