On this page you will find links to inspire writing, they include pictures, videos ...
There are lots of ideas for writing for different audiences and purposes; you should try to write for a range of different purposes but you could use one video to write more than one piece.
Remember to plan, draft, edit and redraft - you have your writing mats in the folders you took home to remind you of the grammar and punctuation you should be using.
Two examples from Literacy Shed are:
https://www.literacyshed.com/the-lighthouse.html - watch short film about a lighthouse keeper and then look at suggested writing tasks and pick one or more....
https://www.literacyshed.com/legostory.html – short film about the history of Lego and then choose 1, or more, writing tasks e.g.
-Practice writing rhetorical questions for effect.
-Children could create Lego models and write instructions
-Create an advert for the early toys
-Create biography for Ole Christiansen.
-Map his mood through the events in the story.
-Compare Lego with other toys such as Meccano or modern games and argue why Lego is best. Maybe worthwhile comparing with mine craft, listing similarities and differences, which is more engaging? Which is best for money? Etc…
-Design own Lego land - use Lego to build it. Draw maps, write brochures and visitors guides.
