Resources for Storytelling Week

We have a number of resources which include story starts to inspire students to get started. Attention grabbing story starters is one of these.

Packed with imaginative and creative challenges, our super popular resource A quest for a cure – thinking skills and activities has been described as perfect for ‘both girls and boys’ and even ‘reluctant writers’. There’s something for everyone!

Starting with The Hobbit, Narrative writing – build your own adventure story is a structured guide walking students through writing their own adventure story, with words, images, maps and monster ideas along the way.

If your students need practice writing with a picture prompt, try the very popular Creative writing picture prompts and Creative writing with pictures.
