Children need a good range of vocabulary and an understanding of story structure to be able to write their own stories. One of the tools we use to support this is 'story mapping'. Here we made a class one and some children initiated their own versions!
Three Little Pigs' houses. They glued hay on for the straw house, sticks onto the stick house and sponge painted red onto the brick house. This would be great for retelling the story of the three little pigs. I'd do it in a smaller version.
