Lesson 1 LO I can divide the story into chapters

Read the story or ask an adult to read it to you

Retell the story using your map from last week.

Plot out the main events of the story, ensuring they are organised into chronological (time) order, checking with your story map.

Re-sort these so that they fit into no more than ten main sections (see suggested 10 parts).

Think of a heading to fit each of these sections and decide where each chapter will begin and where it will end (remembering adverbials practised from last week). If you get stuck look at the example
