This week we have part of another sentence as our prompt:
…the water just kept gushing out…
Things to think about before writing:
As you can see the prompt this week is a yummy picture! It is actually part of a sculpture called ‘The Fast Supper’ which was part of an exhibition in Gloucester Cathedral called ‘Crucible’.
Things to consider:
Copied straight from the 100 word website, from Julia, who runs the challenge…
“We have five words that need to be in the post this week. I know many of our young authors enjoy this style of prompt so I’m looking forward to a great range of stories!”

Make sure that you read your writing out loud to yourself , then to a partner to check for correct punctuation and that each sentence makes complete sense.
If you have time, you could add a picture to your story too!
This week we are looking at size for the prompt:
..but how can something so tiny …
Things to consider:
When you finish your story – read it out loud to yourself first, then read it to a partner. Make sure you check for capital letters and punctuation.
When it is perfect, then you could add a picture or a drawing to your post.
We have a mystery to solve this week!
Things to think about:
This week I am looking for entries that are complete stories (NO “to be continued…”) and in particular I want to make sure that each sentence is completed with correct punctuation, especially capital letters and full stops.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with so get writing…!
This is this week’s challenge, posted from the website –
I’m told that the fine individual word prompts are the favourite types for many of you.
Maybe your class would like to suggest some for me to use. Check the email address in the newsletter and send over your suggestions!
Here are the words for this prompt. Don’t forget they must ALL be in your writing but can be in any order:
…however, yellow, gingerly, discovered, remarkable…
What will you be able to do with these words? My challenge to you is to try a new genre of writing – maybe a diary entry or a newspaper report or an article would suit these words.
I encourage you to write something different (and no more “to be continued…” today – try for a piece of writing that has a resolution of some kind).
to binmy, from Class 6, whose writing was chosen by a teacher from another school in a different country to be part of the 100 word showcase. This means his 100 word entry was judged one of the best from across the world for that week. Well done! We are so proud of you (and keep up the great writing!)
You can read his entry here
As is the tradition when we leave one year behind and look forward to a new one, we make resolutions. Well, this is not about what you are going to do but what you are hoping for.
Now, that could be something about you or your family or you could be hoping for things for your community or even the world. As Peaky would say, the sky’s the limit! So, the prompt is:
…in 2017 I hope…
It was really exciting to log onto the blog and see comments from all over the world for many of our stories this week, including some of our Board of Governors Members.
For the first time since we have been participating in the 100 word challenge, one of our Year 6 stories has been nominated for the Showcase so we will have to wait to see if it is chosen to be displayed on the website.
We have another segment from a sentence for this week’s challenge. It is:
…as I turned round it changed shape …
Things to think about:
It’s time for a few words to put into your writing! All five must be included but you can put them in any order. Maybe you would like to highlight them in some way so that your readers can see them easily. They are:
Wide, Orange, Crocodile, Within, Collapsed
Where will your story be set?
Who are your main characters? What are they doing?
Can you write a story that cleverly weaves together all the words without being clunky?
Can you add a picture that goes with the story you have written? Find one from the website http://www.pics4learning.com/
This is an image I copied from there to add to my blog entry – can you do this too? (You might like to change the size of your image as well!)
The form will close at midnight on 3rd December on the 100 word challenge site so your stories need to be finished today to be in the running…
