This is a simple writing task that is excellent for reluctant writers as well as an extension task for those more able.

I find a motivating or funny picture without any form of caption or text. I display this picture on our classroom TV (screen / Smartboard etc.).

The task is to come up with a six-word sentence that tells the story of the picture. You will be very surprised by what children come up with.

The idea is simple and can be used to form a basis for further narrative writing.


To accompany this idea, we have created some additional resources. A set of twenty images are available, with space to write a six-word sentence.

A set of ‘challenge cards’ are also available to give your children an additional challenge while they write their six-word sentence.
