WordPress’ photography challenge this week is Inside.
We can also use it as a prompt for a writing challenge; 100 words of narrative or descriptive writing, maybe a poem. The choice is yours.

If you want to take a photograph for the challenge and create a post here you will need a username.
Don’t worry if you don’t have your own, we have four generic usernames for pupils to use.

Every week, WordPress publishes a creative writing challenge. This week it is about creating characters. You can see the challenge here.
What do you think of it as a challenge? Does it help you to write about convincing characters? (more…)

Writing the Poem

My beautiful picture

The lesson was about water. We were writing a group poem.

First we chose pictures of water from a magazine. Then we cut them out. Everyone said something they liked about the pictures. I said, “Because it’s bright”. Then I made it into a simile. “Because it’s bright like a sunny day.”

Next we shared our phrases and put them together to make a poem.

Then we said it aloud, trying different orders.

Finally I made a poster of my poem.

It was fantastic and it was a great idea to do it as a group because then we can explain what we’re doing to each other. I found this easier than doing it on my own. My favourite line is “Because it’s a pearl”.

Dinner, in Red!

Inspired by a series of pictures called ‘Pantone Tarts’ by Australian art historian Megan Fizzel, M collected a series of objects – all red – and organised them in the style of a meal. He then photographed them from different angles and here is an example.
