Today we are going to use a story we have already learned to write a new story.

The Shopping Basket

This is a story map of 'The Shopping Basket'.



We are going to change the characters to write our own new story.

Instead of Steven going shopping for his mum Father Christmas is going to send his elf to get a new star for the Christmas Tree. You need to decide who the elf is going to meet and what do they want to take from him.



I'm going to start my story like this


One night Father Christmas was very busy decorating his Christmas Tree. He realised he didn't have a beautiful star for the top of his tree so he asked the Elf if he would go to the forest and find one. 



If you are in school you are going to write your story on this magical Christmas paper.



If you are at home I want you to write your story using this 2Do. Then you can draw your own beautiful Christmas border.
