Even though we are not at school at the moment we are looking forward to keeping in touch via our website, our weekly blog posts, Facebook and Twitter. This is your main page for finding your latest work (and back issues), links to resources that we think may be helpful. If you need any help, or just want to share anything that you find useful, we remain contactable via our blog posts, Facebook & Twitter, and via the email address that you will find at the bottom of the weekly blog post.
Don’t forget to send us your pictures so that we can catch up on what you’re doing at home.

How are you getting on with your writing inspiration? Sometimes it can be hard to come up with the ideas for a story – that’s why we give you stimulus like the tree picture on this week’s worksheet. Another good thing is listing ideas – banks of adjectives, picturing your setting etc.
Also very important is knowing who we are writing for and in this case, Miss Taylor has decided to write for a younger audience. We’re sure you’ll love her story but, listening to it should give you ideas for writing for a younger audience too. Look at the use of rhyme (an important feature in children’s stories) and the use of repetition.
Have you been inspired to write for a younger audience? Or have you got another idea for Dexter and his further adventures? Perhaps you can do some illustrations for Miss Taylor’s story – whatever you do we’d love to hear from you.
