These have been published online using Book Creator. Click on the links below.

Story writing

Year 4 used their literacy skills to write science fiction stories over Easter. (They are great to read. If you want to have a sneaky peak, you can click here to read short extracts from three of the stories).

I was wondering if anyone could share any top tips about writing an effective story. My tip would be to write an opening to get the reader interested… beginning with action is one way to do this.
