For all of Year 3 I would like you to complete the worksheet that goes alongside the video.

Today we are going to learn to re-tell a story using the key events. 

Read the local story called the Pedlar of Swaffham.  Listen to Miss Mitchell reading the story and read along on the text at the same time. Here is the link

Vocabulary check – use a dictionary or ask an adult to find out what these words mean. Write the definitions in your book. If you find writing tricky you can just write out two definitions. 



-tramped and trudged 

- bustle 

What are the key events of the story?  Draw yourself a story map  (some easy pictures to remind yourself of what happens in the story)  and have a go at retelling the story to someone at home from the pictures. Send us a picture of your story map and we’d love to see videos of you retelling it on class dojo too. You can shorten the story into your own words. It’s about WHAT happens, not using the exact same words as Miss Mitchell read. 


We are going to try and answer questions about the text. These questions are about pages 1 to 3 of the story. All of the answers are in the text so you need to look carefully.  Skim and scan to find the right bit of the text with the answer. Remember look for the key word.


Choose an activity from the Children's Mental Health Week ideas. Choose something you feel will make you feel happy. 

Don't forget as it's PE day join in with Joe Wicks or ask your family if you can go out for a walk / scoot / cycle.
