Story Prompts for Young Writers
History is exciting - let’s get writing!
Designed for primary school writers aged 6 and above, these fun and imaginative prompts help parents and teachers create a sense of excitement about creative writing.
Tutor Isabelle King explains how to create characters and memorable settings, encouraging young writers to then explore their stories further.
