Here is an example story structure. 


Once upon a time there was a tiger called Timmy. Timmy has bright orange and black stripes. His teeth were pearly white and sharp. His favourite thing to do was to play hide and seek. One sunny day, he was walking through the woods when he saw his friends Ollie Owl and Percy Pig. He asked them if they would like to play hide and seek with him. They said yes and off they went to hide. '1,2,3..10 ready or not here I come!' shouted Timmy. Off he went to find them. Suddenly, it got very dark and Timmy still hadn't found his friends. He was terrified and ran home. Luckily, his friends were hiding in the back garden of his house! 'Phew I found you', said Timmy. After that, they all went inside and had ice cream. They lived happily ever after, four leaf clover my story is over.
