Foundation Stage children- Talking and retelling stories is so important. I would like you to click on the pencil below and look at the story map. See if you can use it to retell the story in your own words to your grown-up. Grown-ups you could model this to begin with by pointing to the pictures and telling the story in your own words, this will help your child to then retell the story by themselves.
No writing is needed this is a speaking task. However if your child would like something extra to do they could draw a picture form the story and either write a dictated sentence or compose a their own sentence and write it
Year 1 and 2 children - Today you are going to take a page in your book and make your own story map for The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Both classes have made story maps before but if you have forgotten take a look below for some examples. Remember to think about the order that the events in the story happen. What happens at the beginning , the middle and how does the story end.Try and include some key words. Year 2 you could also include some different sentence starters .There are some word mats below to help too.

A note for helpers - this more applicable for Year 1 and 2 children
(EYFS children do not need to understand this but you still discuss where Australia etc.)
The children will probably have not heard of the term ‘Oceania’ but they probably will have heard of ‘Australia’. The short powerpoint below explains this clearly using maps but it is important to discuss this with your child. If you have a globe then this is really helpful in showing your child where Austalia is compared to where we live.Explain that there are many other island countries in this continent, including Australia’s neighbour, New Zealand.
