Night Zookeeper & World Creative Writing Month

| March 2, 2015 | 0 Comments 

The-Night-Zookeeper-1024x1024Creative English writing resource Night Zookeeper have launched a free global writing initiative on their website called World Creative Writing Month.

The aim of the competition is to inspire children to write more stories at home. Pupils are challenged to invent their own magical animals and then are given a series of creative writing prompts about them. The stories they write about their animals can appear within an online newspaper called the Night News and also can be assessed against National Curriculum or Common Core objects in a Teacher admin site.

Schools from every continent have signed up, no doubt hoping to win some fabulous prizes. To register to take part, simply visit the World Creative Writing Month competition page of the Night Zookeeper website.

Here is an overview of some of the exciting activities in store.

As a teacher, you will be able to measure the impact on your pupils writing here.

You can learn how other schools have taken to Night Zookeeper in their case studies section.
