Which era or person will get creativity flowing?

Take the excitement of history and mix it with imagination to create ancient adventures!

Your child can pick any person, place or event from history to inspire their mini saga, a story told in just 100 words.

From discovering a pharaoh's tomb or a soldier in the trenches to being Queen Victoria or an explorer sailing the seven seas it's a great way to tie in creative writing with your child's current history topic, to get them having a bit of fun and to create original short stories.

There are many additional resources ready to have your child raring to write, so do download them and take a look!
