This lovely retelling of a traditional Caribbean creation story tells how rain first began to fall as people travelled from the ‘Land of Sky’ to Earth.


These teachers’ notes accompany the Guided reading leaflet , ‘Raincloud’.

Raincloud - Guided reading leaflet

This retelling of a traditional Caribbean creation story begins in the fantasy ‘Land of Sky’, where people lived before they came down to earth. Although the vocabulary in the story is likely to be familiar to the children, they may need support to understand some of the concepts and the way some of the sentences are constructed.
