Summary

Three KS2 teachers share their strategies for starting stories, looking at ways of drawing pupils in, story planning, and developing character and setting.

In this teaching support film, teachers from Stratton Primary and Watermoor Primary School discuss the different ways in which they support their pupils in fiction writing.

Under the headings of hooks, character, setting and planning, they explain how they use film at the start of lessons, the benefits of story mapping and how to teach pupils to write according to a 5-part plan.

They also discuss how to encourage hands-on learning when creating settings, by modelling plasticine, and walking and talking like a character to help pupils engage with the process of writing their own stories.
