Write A Story



7-sentence story writing template with cues and prompts - Key Stage 2

Writing cues and prompts are useful because sometimes it can be hard to think of what to write about! To help you, we put together 7-sentence story writing templates with pictures and cues. These will stretch your imagination and give you some ideas to write a short story! We are surrounded by photographs in our daily lives - colourful advertisements, family photos, newspaper pictures and computer images. Because children and young people are often naturally drawn to photos, images can become good writing prompts. The cues and prompts in these templates encourage students to

• think to interpret images

• write creatively

• use sequencing

• recognise the elements of fun stories

• put together a short story of your own

• use language and grammar elements

• display your work.





TTLCICimg486MIf a young person wishes to submit a story for possible publication on this website, they must gain permission from their parents or carers and indicate this on the relevant form when they send us their story. We require parents' or carers' email addresses, too, even if story writers may have the same address that they have. In order to be published, young writers must also include their name and age. Story writers may choose to have a story published on the website anonymously or with a pen name. We also request their year group and the name of their school. However, these items are optional and choosing not to include them will not affect their chances of getting published. Talk Together London CIC reserves the right to examine submitted content and has the sole discretion to determine whether submitted content will be published on the website.
