A prompt to get you thinking!

Although the northern hemisphere is on holiday now so the number of entries may be down, I know those schools in New Zealand, Australia and the rest of the southern hemisphere will enjoy this prompt!

Showcase news

I’m delighted to highlight a post from a pupil on their first time on 100 Word Challenge. His class teacher at Berkley First School in Frome, UK invited me to visit and speak to the staff so I’m delighted that they have joined the challenge.

Nathan in Year 3 at Berkley First School, Frome, UK

Week #40

Holiday Time!

Most schools in the UK are either already on holiday or about to start their last week. Have a great time everyone!

Showcase news

As explained in the last newsletter, the showcase will be shown on the prompt rather than on a separate page over July / August. This is because there are only a few nominations. For Week #38 they were:

Jack in Yr. 6 at Stockbridge Primary School, Hants, UK

Munveer in Yr.5 at Ley Hill School, Chesham, Bucks, UK

Emma in Yr.8 at Drummond Primary School, Southland, NZ

Bethany in Yr.6 at Stockbridge Primary School, Hants, UK

If you are going to use the prompts through July and August please send me nominations for the showcase!

Latest prompt

The picture for this week’#s prompt was sent in by the students at Victoria Avenue School. They thought you would be able to conjure up some great stories with it!


The form will close at 23.45 BST on 22nd July
