Once your child has listened to, and watched the story many times help them to make a story map. A story map is simple pictures and words putting the story in order so that they can read and retell the story again and again.

Can your child draw a picture of their favourite character from the story?

They might like you to help them to write the names of the different characters from the story. Perhaps they could have a go at writing the words themselves. You could write for them or how about making a video of your child writing. Your child could draw a picture of the three Billy goats gruff or the big troll. Send in your pictures and videos to [email protected] – we would love to see them and put some on the website for others to see.
