Can't You Sleep Little Bear?

To be able to write a story, it is very important that we know it orally first of all. This means that we need to be able to tell somebody else a story and speak it first of all, using our own words. In Year 1, we do this by practising saying the story and adding actions to help us remember the words.
Watch this video of a different class practising the story of 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear' and then have a go yourself of re-telling the story to somebody at home with some of your own actions. You may need to do this a couple of times, until you know it off by heart!

When you have practised it, you might want to record a short part of your story telling and send it to Mrs Poole. If you want to listen to the story book again and see the pictures, then you can watch the video underneath. This one is animated with moving pictures.
