Reading skill: To identify what happens at the beginning, middle and end of a story. To sequence the main events of a story.

Reading strategy: To summarise what has happened in the story. To use a graphic organizer (pictures) to show what happens in the story.

Grammar: To identify a ‘telling’ sentence – a statement about something.

Writing: To write simple sentences about a story using correct punctuation. To have confidence to try and spell new words using phonic knowledge. To form and orientate letters correctly. To write independent telling sentences.
