Primary ICT - Whiteboard Literacy - Nine More Story Starts

This programme consists of nine short drama sequences that can be used in the classroom to stimulate creative writing amongst primary pupils.

Each story start presents a different scenario and characters which are open to interpretation by pupils and teachers, including:

  • a girl who wanders into a spooky basement
  • a kite that causes trouble in high winds
  • a piglet that explores a farm

Each individual story start ends on a cliff-hanger, encouraging pupils to continue the story from this point.
