Writing Challenge 2 w.b. 27.4.20 


This week’s writing challenge is to create a story ‘s’ of Mr Gumpy’s Outing.

Before you begin, make sure that you have listened to the story, the video is below.

What happens in the Beginning, the Middle and the End of the Story?


Begin by drawing a story ‘s’ (see video for details), this will be used to map out the story, using lots of pictures. You can also label your pictures, use your sound mat to help.

See the video for explanation of what a story ‘s’ is and guidance for the task.


Story ‘s’ without labels 



Using your Story Map / Story ‘s’ can you write a couple of sentences telling us about Mr Gumpy’s Outing?


Make sure to remember capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and use your sound mat.

See the video for guidance and for some ideas how adults can support in sentence writing.
