We have been working in small groups to pull apart a story, we have looked at the plot and what are the 4 main parts of the story are. 

We have to draw the 4 most important parts and write a small sentence under the drawing so we could tell someone about our story without them having to read it.

Together we have looked at narrative stories and how there is always a problem that follows with a solution. Then we looked at the problem and solution in our story. Here are our examples. 

Lucy, Hana, Keiran &  Liam said: The problem was Greedy cat was eating everything, The solution was that The mum brought pepper to trick Greedy cat so he wouldn't eat anything again.

We had to have excellent group work, this meant sharing ideas and being able to listen to others and their point of view.
