Planning your next chapter- Conker disappears  

Today, we would like you to choose one of your 'Lost Conker  ideas' from your plan on Friday.

Then, we would like you to plan your story by recording it as a story map. We have done many of these before so you should be familiar with how to do one. Your story map should be in chronological order and will help you to write your story tomorrow as it will tell the story mostly in picture form. Please make sure you take your time and include all of the main parts of your story using pictures, words and symbols. 

An example of a story map is below.
