A simple beginning - middle - end storyboard could be used to record the story and the children asked to retell it. Alternatively, children might use a story map as an aid to retelling the story. Would fit in well with cross curricular work on weather and climate or Spain and holidays. Re-tell using appropriate voices for different characters. Structure a new sequence of events based on the story and use this as a story plan. Write in the style of the story using typical dialogue, past tense and time connectives.
