This week we have begun to look at stories with a familiar setting. 

As our topic this half term is called 'The Place Where I Live' I decided that we would base our English learning around the Katie Morag stories as they are about a little girl and the place where she lives in Scotland. 

We have thought about the structure of a story and drawn a story map for the story 'Katie Morag Delivers The Mail'.  Whilst listening to stories read from the books and watching episodes of the Katie Morag stories made by the BBC on DVD we have been building up a character profile of Katie.

The children wrote questions they wanted to ask Katie and then we put Katie (me) in the Hot Seat and asked her the questions! 

Then the children wrote adjectives and sentences to describe Katie.
