I hope you have got some amazing ideas in your plan for your story about 'Little Red'! Before we get started on the writing there are a few things that we need to make sure first.
Go back to your plan that you made in Lesson 3. Can you pick out the beginning, middle and end of your story? You might want to tell a friend, or even jot down what happens at each part of the story so that you know it really well.
