This is a very simple mini story I use with my 6 year olds at the beginning of term. I like to get them straight into the idea of telling stories.



Present simple version

Eli is an elephant. One day she wakes up. She jumps out of bed. She has breakfast. She gets dressed. She goes to the jungle. She meets a lion. “Grrrr!” says the lion. “Are you angry?” says Eli. “I´m not angry, I am hungry” says the lion. They have a picnic. The lion is happy.



Past simple version

Eli was an elephant. One day she woke up. She jumped out of bed. She had breakfast. She got dressed. She went to the jungle. She met a lion. “Grrrr!” said the lion. “Are you angry?” asked Eli. “I´m not angry, I am hungry” said the lion. So they had a picnic. The lion was happy.


Extending the story

Once the children know the story, you can retell it but this time add little details (using language they children already know). You can then encourage them to retell the story adding their own extra bits. For example:

Eli is an elephant. One day she wakes up. It is Saturday. She jumps out of bed. She has breakfast. She eats toast and she drinks orange juice. She gets dressed. She goes to the jungle. It´s a sunny day. She meets a lion. The lion is big. “Grrrr!” says the lion. “Are you angry?” says Eli. “I´m not angry, I am hungry” says the lion. They have a picnic. They play football. The lion is happy.
