Have you heard of 100 Word Challenge?
It is a free weekly creative writing challenge for children under 16 run by Julia Skinner (@TheHeadsOffice).
“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 should be posted on a class blog and then linked to the 100 Word Challenge blog.
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.”
You can find out more about the challenge by visiting https://100wc.net/
