Rooted in faith, we reach for the stars.

Week Beginning January 24th 2022

This week, we will learn to retell the story of Beegu by Alexis Deacon.  You can hear the story by watching Puffin Storytime | Beegu + Draw-along with Alexis Deacon - YouTube (and learn how to draw Beegu too).


We will sequence the events in the story by making a story map.  You can use the story map sheet below to help you.  Can you draw a picture for each event in the story?


We will then use our story maps to help us retell the story.  Take turns with your adult to say a full sentence for each picture on your story map.  For example:


  • Adult: Beegu was lost.
  • Child: No-one understood her.
  • Adult: She thought she heard her mother.


We will then write our retellings.  Before you write a sentence, practise saying it aloud.  Make sure you use capital letters and full stops.  When you finish a sentence, read it back to check it makes sense.


We will be delighted with three of four carefully written sentences, but please tell more of the story if you can.


*If your child is at an early stage in their writing learning journey, ask them to draw their favourite part and support them in writing a simple caption or a few labels.*
