In Reception we use story maps to support children to retell stories.  Below is an image for a story map for The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Give your child a piece of paper and ask them to draw pictures to retell the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  If you ask them to do a story map they should know what to do as we have done it with lots of different stories this year.  They can then add labels to their map e.g. caterpillar, butterfly, leaf.  When they have finished their map ask them to tell you their story.  You could video them doing this and email it to us.  We would love to hear their amazing stories!
