Inspire your pupils to write about imaginary worlds

These resources were created as part of a large school networking project in Staffordshire, which focused on inspiring children to write (particularly boys).  A range of resources were developed which have been used successfully in schools. 

I’ve started with Imaginary Worlds as this was a popular topic with Year 4 pupils and I happened to be working alongside a Year 4 colleague.  The video files referred to were downloaded either from the film’s own home site or from Jurassic Punk.  I am limited to the file type I can upload to this blog and so have converted some files to PDF.  We did create a Photo Story file focused on Imaginary Worlds with accompanying music to add impact.  You could quickly and easily compile one of these yourself.

All materials have a literacy focus but may have a history geography, PSHE or other context.  The materials based around the Blitz, Evacuation and the Egyptians proved particularly successful.
