Last year my childrens' school read one of Andy Griffiths books and then went to see a play based on it. This sparked a huge interest in writing stories, so the teachers wanted to encourage this enthusiasm. Each child was asked to write a story about their favourite animal and draw a picture. Some took the subject quite literally while others let their imaginations run wild.
The idea behind this project was to get the children excited about writing stories and not to be afraid to create and have fun. Who knows we may have another Andy Griffiths in our midsts.
