Invaders and Settlers- The Past Alive Team, Jo and Steve, visited our school to tell the children all about life in the olden days. The children will then go on to use this information and research to write their own non-chronological reports.

Song Writing with Notivate
The children put all their creativity in to writing songs for an Anti Bullying competition. They then got to go to a studio to record their songs.
Check them out on the Notivate website.

Hubble Bubble, Toil and Trouble
A scene was set up in the school hall. Someone had spilled my potion and I needed the help of the children to make me another one. Their task was simple, write instructions for my magic potion.

Using art to carry out a Big Write
The children were given this famous image. They then had to think about the story behind the image.
Different open and closed questions were asked by the children and a Power of the Pen activity was carried out to generate ideas.

The children had to write a creative piece all about a mystery mans garden. They watched a video first and then went outside with a FANTASTIC sheet that they had to sill in, thinking about their senses.

The FANTASTICS
I love using Jane Considine's FANTASTICS. It really gets the children thinking about different feelings and actions etc that may take place in their writing. Check out her website.

I love this library - it has a real 'secret garden' feel doesn't it? A bit of astro-turf on the floor and some nature style wallpaper and hey presto!

Bringing the Celts to life.
Why not have a day where the children dress up for your topic. This is a brilliant way to inspire the children, get their juices flowing and really help them to think about the topic ahead.
