Thanks to the wonderful teachers from around the world who have chosen my resources. I care passionately about quality and value and want you to fill your teaching ‘shelf’ with confidence, saving precious time. Hopefully they won’t be staying on the shelf for long as you’ll use them again and again! I’m a Primary Teacher and published writer with an English degree and French A-level. My resources are mostly Primary but some suit Secondary classes too. I hope your students enjoy using them.

KS2 or early KS3 imaginative / descriptive writing story starters cards, featuring high quality photo prompts, vocabulary banks, prompt questions and more. These 20 full-page story generators can be used across a range of abilities and ages, especially in Year 4, 5, 6 and 7, to spark ideas for stories. They’re great for reluctant writers and they have a dyslexia friendly format too. REFRESHED January 2021!

  • Use as warm ups, early finishers activities and as a framework for free writing sessions
  • Each of the 20 A4 cards features a visual element (photo / picture stimulus), a starter sentence or part-sentence to help launch children into their fiction / narrative writing
  • Prompt questions to get ideas going
  • A word bank and some suggested openers to add variety to their writing
  • A box at the bottom reminds students to read their work aloud, check for full stops and capital letters and common spellings
  • Range of subjects and genres including sport, mystery, humour, fantasy and historical. Plenty of variety so children can choose ones that appeal to them.
  • UK and US English versions included, with spellings and references to ‘full stops’ and ‘periods’ etc amended as appropriate
  • Designed to offer maximum support for dyslexic learners and those with similar barriers to learning. Verdana font and spacing used are both dyslexia-friendly and the background colours are designed to reduce glare. Both the UK and US cards are also included with the background colours removed and could be used if printing on dyslexia friendly paper or card.
  • Could be used to support the writing of a full story
  • Could also work well as a regular tool to support struggling writers in one-to-one or small group sessions, where students write a few sentences inspired by the prompts, without worrying about completing a story.

Literacy Activities KS2

Originally bundled for Back to School in Years 4, 5 and 6, these low prep and time-saving printables will last you well beyond the start of term and can be used again and again. Writing, Reading and SPaG activities are included. CREATIVE WRITING STORY PROMPTS 20 A4 Writing Prompt Cards with a picture, word bank, starter sentence and questions to stimulate a story. Students could choose one to spark a full piece, just a paragraph or two or perhaps a description. Dyslexia-friendly font and format used. IMPROVING SENTENCES 40 differentiated Sentence Uplevelling Trails to support pupils in writing more ambitious, complex sentences. Use as worksheets or laminate for regular use. Worked examples of extended sentences included. FULL STOPS / CAPITAL LETTERS SELF-CHECK SENTENCES CARDS 40 differentiated cards with an unpunctuated paragraph on one side and the corrections on the other. This resource supports students figuring out where sentences begin and end, a skill that often needs significant consolidation after the summer break. It’s a great stepping stone to students more independently checking and editing their own writing. Dyslexia-friendly format. Students complete on laminated cards or copy paragraphs into jotters. GIANT BOOK CROSSWORD Set up a book-loving ethos with your new class with this 100+ clues crossword on children's books, designed for group completion. It includes classics and fairly recent releases. It sparks off lots of lovely informal chats about what students have read. Solution is provided, as is a sheet with answers in alphabetical order for support where necessary. If you don't end up using it at the start of term you could always hang on to it for World Book Day (WBD). For more detailed information and previews please click on the individual resources. I hope this bundle provides you engaging time-saving resources for the first couple of weeks back in school as well as resources that you'll come to time and again throughout the year. If you can spare a moment I would be so grateful for a review on TES. Many thanks.

Good story prompts, but it would be more useful as a Word document, rather than a pdf.
