CREATIVE WRITING COMPETITION FOR 7-11 YEAR-OLDS

Ancient Adventures is a fun way to engage your pupils with creative writing by challenging them to write a story in just 100 words! This really encourages pupils to think about sentence structure and vocabulary.

Ancient Adventures lends itself wonderfully to both British and World History topics, and gives the freedom to explore people, places and events throughout history. Pupils can be inspired by any historical figure or period in history.
