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.

Winter is a wonderful time in the woods! Your pupils' mini sagas (a story told in just 100 words) can be inspired by nature or they could retell a fairy tale with a twist. Perhaps a school or camping trip would make a fantastic recount and, of course, there’s the good old ghost story to give us chills on dark and stormy days!

If your pupils are home learning or 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 English lesson!
