  • I love the story of Sammy during the great fire and intend to use it to teach English in Year 1. However, I feel it is rather long and complex for many of my children in the class. I was wondering if you could create an alternative version which tells the same story but is shorter and simpler. Thank you

    • Hi jo4nn492,
      Thanks for taking the time to get in touch. Your request has been sent through to our design team to look into. We do our best to make as many of your suggestions as we can, but we ask you to please be patient, as some of our resources can take a little longer than others!

    • Hi there,
      Our lovely PlanIt team are focusing all their efforts on creating lots of great new units and won't currently be adapting our existing lessons. We have added an editable version of the 'Sammy the Street Dog Story Print Out' to the pack that you might find useful for differentiating with your class and the new version is now available to download. I hope it helps!

  • It is a shame that this resource is incomplete, as I am hoping to use it from tomorrow. It mentions the differentiated hot seating worksheet and the adult guidance sheet for the story map.  I am not sure in what way the children should use the story map sheet.  It seems complete to me?  Should there be a blank that the children add the pictures to?

  • Hi there, the lesson plan says that there's an adult guidance sheet for the story map work but I cannot see this in the file. Are you able to point me in the right direction for this? Thanks!

  • Just reading through the Lesson Plan and it suggests there is a differentiated hot seating worksheet - I don't seem to be able to find this sheet. There is only one activity sheet which is differentiated. Thanks
