Friday 3rd April
How did you get on with creating your character?
Today you are going to write your very own story!! I would like you to use “Katie in London” to help you with the structure of your story.
- If you created an animal, you will use your character instead of the lion.
- If you created a person, you will use your character instead of Katie.
Listen to the story again to remind yourself of where Katie and the lion go in London and have a go at writing your own story. Good luck and I really look forward to reading your stories on Tapestry.
