100 Word Challenge

Part 1

This week we would like you to try out the 100 word challenge for the first time. You will find it under the page 100 Word Challenge Week 1.

 The idea is that you are given a prompt such as a picture or some words and your challenge is to write a story using exactly 100 words!  Please email your entry to L.Pattinson@halterworth.hants.sch.uk  and I will post it up for you on the 100 Word Challenge page under your name.

 

Part 2

The second part of the challenge is to read other 100 word challenge entries on our blog and also on Miss Easton’s class’s blog. You can get to their blog via the school website.

 

Choose 3 other 100 WCs to post a positive comment about. You might want to comment on some excellent vocabulary used, or some impressive fronted adverbials.  Sometimes it is also helpful to say what might make the writing even better next time.  Be sure to be nice when writing your comments please!

 

Mums and Dads are very welcome to post comments too!

 

If you have any questions please let me know.

 

Why do I need to do this?

To practise using writing skills learnt and to write for a wider audience.
