Next week we will be writing a narrative based on the story 'The Snail and the Whale'.

(A narrative is another word for a story)

A story is usually split into 3 parts... Opening   Dilemma   Solution/ending 

Before we can write our narrative, we need to plan it.

Below is a template for the plan but you could also split a piece of paper into 3 sections and draw the pictures for each section yourself. 

Think about the the time adverbials that you used yesterday and add them to your plan to show the order of the events in the story. 

We will continue this plan on Monday so don't rush!

Below are some examples of story openers... you could add one of these to your plan.
