Home/School - Story setting challenge

KS1/Foundation, KS2

We are joining once again with the National Literacy Trust to bring you another exciting challenge and live event on Thursday 25 November to help you to create your very own world!

Fantastic new author Benjamin Dean will be delivering a very special live workshop all about story settings. It’s going to take place at 10:30am on Thursday 25 November, and will be presented by CBBC’s Ben Shires. There will be the chance for you to share your story settings and to work with Benjamin and thousands of pupils just like you watching online to build your very own world!

Make sure you tune in and take part. Find out how to watch the event on the National Literacy Trust’s Words for Life website. And don’t forget to share your amazing worlds with us by sharing them on @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars or emailing them to for the chance to receive a box of books for your school.
