‘From day dot, young Geoff had a curious and unshakeable love for beans.’ 
It is only fitting then, that when Geoff grows up, he gets a job at the Heinz baked beans factory.   As ‘Head of Innovation,’ it is Geoff’s job to create new products in the laboratory.  Young and single Geoff realises that a tin of baked beans can be too large for one person and he designs ‘the one for one,’ a tin of beans just right for one person to have as a snack.
One day, Geoff notices a beautiful colleague who works in the Department of Spaghetti, he realises he may need to share his beans so he designs a larger can – ‘The one for two.’  Two soon becomes four, with the introduction of little twin beans and then Geoff realises that he needs ‘The one for all’ tin of beans. 

Your challenge (pick from below) - 

  • Write Geoff’s biography
  • Retell Geoff’s story

  • Write dialogue between Geoff and his wife
  • Create advertising jingles for the new Bean range

Do you know who lives below wishing wells?  In this short animation, we find out that beneath each well lives a small creature.  A mythical granter of wishes. 

This Wishgranter is quite apathetic but when a wish for love becomes stuck in the well mechanism then the Wishgranter springs into action.  Although not everything goes to plan, all is well in the end!

Your challenge (pick from below) - 

  • Retell the story from various points of view. 
    • The Wishgranter
    • The Money wisher
    • Either of the love wishers
  • Write diary entries for the various characters
  • Discuss what you would wish for and why.  
  • Write an explanation about how wishes are granted. 
  • Create thought bubbles for the people making the wishes. 
  • Write dialogue for the two characters at the end. 
  • Explain what is needed in a Wishgranter's toolbox. 
  • Create a persuasive film review and trailer.
CREATIVE WRITING CHALLENGE 9 - the legend of the crabbe phare

The Crabe Phare is a colossal crustacean who lives at the bottom of the ocean. When this mammoth creature rises from the deep, he doesn't have destruction on his mind.  Instead, he wants to collect and preserve ships to add to his underwater collection. 

The huge creature is not the monster of the story: it is the humans. The message of this story is one about the effect that humans have on the natural world.  A powerful message told stylishly with a touch of humour. 

Your challenge (pick from below) - 

  • Synonyms and antonyms for big and monster. 
  • Description of the creature. 
    • Can children change these to make the monster sound fierce and or friendly?
  • Retell the story in the 1st person as the crab or as a visitor.
  • Create a Guinness World of Records entry for the Crabe using examples from the latest book. 
  • Create a news report about events in the story. 
  • Create a persuasive piece asking humans to leave the crab alone.
