This download contains materials designed to assist KS2 students in writing stories with a fantasy setting. If children are to write such stories successfully, they must be able to distinguish their story’s imaginative locations, characters and environments from life in their own place and time.
The pictures and image prompts in this pack will give students plenty of ideas to work with, and help them convey those extra details that will make their stories and characters really come alive.
The pack’s contents include:
- 13-page ‘Stories with a fantasy setting’ inspiration book, containing image prompts and text fields in which students can jot down their ideas
- 6-page ‘Fantasy Story Planning Sheets’ document, containing prompts and writing space for ideas relating to characters, interior settings, outdoor settings and objects/animals
- 33-page poster book containing high resolution photography/renders of different fantasy locations, characters and objects, with one image per page
- Teacher Notes document
