Creative Writing - Literacy Shed

We'll let you in to a secret - one of our favourite websites...

Literacy shed is full of inspiration for writing and thinking.  Beautiful images and thought-provoking short films.  It's where we found our rainforest-inspired video, which you can watch again here: https://www.literacyshed.com/hunted.html  I wonder what else you could write about it, other than a diary...

A video that links well to Nowhere Emporium is this one: https://www.literacyshed.com/forever-young.html Could you write this man's diary? Or you could explain what you would do if you could live forever. 

Finally, we love the story starter shed.  Choose any one and write a story of your own.

Do send examples of your writing to earlsmeadyear5@gmail.com.  We're used to reading your writing every day!
