For our literacy today, story mapping was first on the menu and the children set out to produce brilliant recounts of The Highwayman. Showing a great love of our new literacy theme, the children recapped the story of the Highwayman In their pairs and started to discuss what language they could use to describe their pictures.
The children showed incredible knowledge of the text and demonstrated a brilliant attitude for Talk for Writing. After we perfected our maps, we started to add in emotions, description and thoughts into our maps. The children thought really carefully about how to support their images with writing. After lots of editing, redrafting and perfecting, the children were ready to show off their story maps. The results were incredible. Take a look for yourself, here we are with our outstanding learning.
