Early Learning Resources Story Sequencing Resources

Story Sequencing

Story sequencing involves identifying different sections of the narrative – the beginning, middle and end – and putting them into a logical order. It requires children to process and organise information and as such helps them to develop their problem solving and reasoning skills.

The resources below can be used as part of a variety of different activities and you can increase the difficulty of the exercise by removing key scenes and asking the children to work out which part of the story is missing.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!
