Spooky Sagas is here to inspire your pupils aged 7-11 to get writing!

Find out what lurks in pupils’ amazing imaginations with Spooky Sagas! Challenge pupils to write a mini saga, a story in just 100 words.

Can pupils use their writing powers to create a spine-tingling tale that uses atmosphere and suspense? From things that go bump in the night to Halloween pranks, your pupils will love taking part in Spooky Sagas.

Trust us, it’s going to be a scream!
