Unsolved Video

Enthral imaginations with creative writing as young writers create their own mini saga!

'Unsolved' invites your students to write a mini saga (a story told in just 100 words) inspired by the crime & mystery genre.

Will they fight for justice? Take on the role of detective in an enthralling whodunit? Or embark on an adventure as a fugitive?

Create a buzz in your English lessons as your students get excited to write!

There's a fun 1-minute video to introduce your students to the activity, plus a students' info guide and worksheet, and we've even got virtual classrooms covered with options such as the Word Doc version of the entry form and the Online Writing Portal - simply login or create your free teacher account at www.youngwriters.co.uk/teacher
