Story Starters


How to spark ideas *  Top tips to get ideas on the page * Inspiration to write and draw

Story Starters is aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils.

Go on a virtual story-making adventure with us!

We share our creative skills and secrets in a series of virtual mini masterclasses to add a spark of magic to your children’s story writing.

Each of our 6 videos is 10-20 minutes long and is accompanied by teachers’ notes.

In  Storytelling, we start your pupils’ creative writing journey with a tale to light up the imagination, a re-telling of the curious traditional tale of Baba Yaga.

In  Story Spark, we explore where and how we find ideas for stories.

In  Mind Mapping, we look at ways of developing a new idea into something exciting.

In Creating Characters, we find out how to invent the characters in our story.

In Drama, we discover how to use acting skills to learn how and what our characters are feeling.

In Step Inside Your Story, we learn how to put all that drama and action on to the page.

Available for hire for £99 per school, for one year from date of purchase.
