Storymap for Friend or Foe, letter from David's Mum, Talk 4 Writing English KS1 and KS2 Literacy WW2

Storymap for Friend or Foe, letter from David's Mum, Talk 4 Writing English KS1 and KS2 Literacy WW2

I drew this story map based on a letter from David's Mum in the story of Friend or Foe, about the World War 2. The children in Year 3 (could also be used in KS1) learnt the story off-by-heart using actions, and then retold from memory. They then used this to write the letter adding in punctuation and paragraphs. The children based their reply letter (as if they were David) on this, to write their own letter, remembering to answer the questions from David's mum. A really simple storymap to start with for Year 3, definitely suitable for Year 4 or lower years. We learnt this for part of our World, War 2 topic this term.
