Students use a 'Story Map' to plan out their short stories - key areas include :

  • Problem to be solved

  • The setting

  • Characters in the story - this can include pets and animals 

  • 3 Main events - to give structure, pace and tension to the story

  • Resolution - What happens at the end? There may be a twist at the end!
