Explore the theme of ‘Lost and Found’ in KS1 using this text type resource pack. Young writers will learn a simple story structure by reading the model text ‘Where’s Benji?’, a short story set in a familiar setting about a lost toy that is then found. This simple narrative can be told by pupils in KS1, acting out ideas to help sequence the story. The resources are based on a model text with planning sheets to support pupils to retell or write their own version of a lost and found tale.

This resource includes:

Model text - Where’s Benji?
A simple narrative of a toy that is thought to be lost.
Lost and found story writing sheet
This contains success criteria that pupils can use with examples of words that show position (prepositions) and simple time adverbials.
Story idea cards
A set of PDF image cards with ideas for story writing. The cards have examples of things that could be lost and where people could look to find them.
Lost and Found story planning sheet
A worksheet to support pupils to plan and structure their writing.
Writing paper
A PDF sheet that pupils could use to present their work.
