"I believe I have seen a genuine correlation between children involved in the ARTiculate workshops and target children making Age Related Expectation (ARE)...Every child benefited with progress, clearly evident in their school books."
Simon, Y4 Teacher, Leeds

"Raised pupil's writing by at least 1 sub-level - developed their ability to apply knowledge. Hopefully we will see ARTiculate in our school again!"
Andrew Howdle, Literacy Coordinator

"Very inspirational and creative - lots of new ideas to improve writing and unlock children's imaginations."
Nadia, Year 4 teacher

Bambert's Book of Missing Stories

This story is not just a book of writing. It is a book about writing. Bambert lives a lonely, detached life with only Mr Bloom the greengrocer and the characters in his stories – The Book of Wishes - for company. Not convinced he knows enough of the world to make his writing believable, he sets his stories free on paper lanterns to find the characters and settings they deserve.

In brief: Have you tried? 
Ideas for talking and thinking: How do writers write? That is the question and this book gives you the starting point for a discussion about where ideas come from.

Ideas for writing: Collaborate as a class or with another school on creative story writing.

Ideas for art: Give your stories wings by building paper lanterns.      

If you try any of the ideas I'd love to see the work your children produce!
