Split pupils into 6 groups and give each group an ideas postcard, a sheet of paper and a pen. As a group the need to write down a name, an adjective, a colour, a verb and any random word they like!
Challenge each pupil to write their own mini saga on their postcard story theme and include each of the words on the sheet (or as many as possible!)
Your pupils can then share their mini sagas within their group to see how different they are. If you have time, share all the stories with the class, so they can see how different children were inspired to use 5 simple words!
