Watch seven short videos designed for use on an interactive whiteboard when teaching literacy at KS1 and KS2.
Suitable for Years 1-6, each of the short videos sets up a context or narrative that can stimulate children's creative writing and storytelling activities.
An alluring jewellery shop, a ghostly graveyard, and a tunnel with a warning are just three of the exciting story starts included.
Adviser and deputy headteacher Simon Botten introduces the video, providing tips on how best to use these resources.
