BLOGGING with PLYMOUTH, ENGLAND – MAY 2014

100 WORD CHALLENGES

100 word challenge is a  creative writing challenge for our children. For each challenge a prompt is given, which can be a picture or a series of individual words and the children can use up to 100 words to write a creative piece. This should be posted as a comment on this blog under the prompt.

By setting a limited word count with a focused theme, children have far greater motivation for writing. Those who are reluctant writers feel safe with only 100 words to write, whilst those more advanced writers can really extend themselves with the word restriction.

One of the special things about 100WC is that those entering a piece of writing are encouraged to read other entries and leave a constructive comment. Peer ‘talking’ to peer is very powerful and we have seen a real improvement in some writing that has come from suggestions from other children. It also provides another teaching point for teachers to show children how to comment constructively.

Above all – it is fun! Children feel challenged and then really rewarded when they see the comments. Do join in and see writing improve! (maybe even have a go yourselves, all welcome!).

100 WORD CHALLENGE – NUMBER 1 – THE NIGHT ZOO…

This is amazing! You are going to love it.

Your mission is to create your own scary character to live in the house and write a hundred words about it. Remember to use terrifying adjectives to scare your readers! 

To help you create your character and story setting you are going to use a special super coll website called THE NIGHT ZOO

On this website you can draw your own character and place it into a variety of scary story settings… then all you have to do is type 100 words! At the end you can copy and paste it onto your blogs.

Watch this film to get you in the mood.

HAPPY NEW YEAR and WELCOME BACK

Just before we broke up for Christmas we tried a new blogging experiment. We decided to make a joint website with our friends from Kansas City. We wrote messages to each other and posted some of our work about the Hare and Bear. Click on the photo below to visit our new site.
