A Wander In The Woods

7-11 Years

Inspire your young writers to write a mini saga, a story told in 100 words!

Did you know that the National Literacy Trust reported only 50% of children enjoy creative writing?
It’s decreasing year on year... let’s put a stop to that now!

A Wander In The Woods takes your pupils' imaginations on an adventure, whether you can do that outside or set the scene in your classroom.

Your pupils' mini sagas (a story told in just 100 words) can be inspired by one of the 8 story starters we've provided to help your pupils focus their writing and give them the confidence to write. Alternatively, they can be inspired by the woodland theme and perhaps write a spooky campfire tale or about nature!

For pupils that are remote learning or if you want to go paperless, log in (or create) your free teacher account here: to use the fantastic Online Writing Portal.

If you go down to the woods today you're in for... an amazing lesson!
