Blog Integer Stories Inspired by Numbers FAQs
How much time will it take?
That’s entirely up to you. You can choose to use the resources over a few lessons, as a stand-alone lesson… or if you don’t have time in lesson and you still want your pupils to enjoy the Young Writers experience this is the perfect activity for homework or a creative writing club.
Is there a cost to enter?
No, it’s absolutely free to use the resources and enter competitions!
What’s more, you’ll get a free copy of the book your students’ work is published in so every young writer will get to see their work in print without any cost.
AND… For every 30 entries you submit you get a free copy of the book your students feature in so every participating school receives at least 1 free copy.
Can you send me resources in the post?
Of course, we know budgets can be tight in school so we’ll print and send you as many as you need.
Because of the time and cost of international delivery we don’t send resources overseas. If you’re outside the UK please download resources.
How can I engage reluctant writers or students that think writing is boring?
Integer is a great way to make writing exciting in your lesson. We recommend using the video to start your lesson to engage your students. There are also both visual and text prompts to help get them started as we know it’s always starting that’s the hardest.
Is this suitable for all abilities?
Yes! At Young Writers we value inclusivity; we try to create resources for a range of abilities. You’ll find plenty to help get your students writing in the downloads including story prompts with word banks, higher level writing tips and plenty of examples.
Whatever the students’ ability or confidence level we’d just love for them to get writing. We know seeing themselves published in a book means they’ll have more confidence and motivation next time they write!
Can we enter online?
You can enter however is best for you and your students. They can use the planning sheet/entry form and you can post, email or upload them.
Or if you want to combine literacy and ICT your students can use the Word Doc entry form or the Online Writing Portal where they can type their work up and you can send them to us at the click of the button!
