The 100 Word Challenge
The 100 word challenge is a weekly creative writing challenge for children. Each week a prompt is given, which can be a picture or a series of individual words and the children can use up to 100 words to write a creative piece, this could be a story, a poem or a recount. The creative writing piece will be displayed in our writing den and the child will receive a certificate in celebration assembly on Friday.
By setting a limited word count with a focused theme and a guaranteed audience beyond the class teacher, children have far greater motivation for writing. Those who are reluctant writers feel safe with only 100 words to write, whilst those more advanced writers can really extend themselves with the word restriction.
