This download contains materials designed to assist KS2 students with writing stories set within the period of the Wild West. If children are to accurately portray a particular historical setting, they will require sufficient knowledge of the setting in question to clearly distinguish it from life in their own time.

The pictures and image prompts in this pack are grouped into sets, which serve to give students plenty of ideas to work with and convey details that will make their stories and characters truly come alive. The pack also includes some short example texts to give your students some inspiration and help them on their way.

The pack includes the following:

  • 13-page ‘Wild West Pupil Inspiration Book’ containing image prompts and text fields in which students can jot down their ideas
  • 4-page ‘Wild West Planning Sheets’ document containing prompts and writing space for ideas relating to town settings, outdoor settings, characters and objects/animals
  • 29-page WIld West Posters book, containing high resolution photography themed around the Wild West, with one image per page
  • ‘Wild West Images’ PowerPoint presentation containing 21 slides of assorted Wild West-themed photography
  • Teacher Notes document
