Kids’ Club February 2023

Welcome to another instalment of our Nosy Crow Kids’ Club: a monthly feature with lots of engaging activities for the young readers in your life! Each month we’ll post a creative writing prompt based on one of our recent publications, and some downloadable activity sheets for you to print for your little ones.

Write a Story


Taking inspiration from our recently published Press Start series by Thomas Flintham, our story prompt this month focuses on creating your very own computer game narrative! This activity is taken from our Press Start Educational Resources for KS1, written by Lucy Marcovitchwhich you can find in their entirety here.

INVENT YOUR OWN COMPUTER GAME: In pairs or small groups, ask children to invent their own story computer game. Give them prompts to help them plan it, such as: o Create a superhero character and an evil character. Who are they? What characteristics/powers do they have? o What bad thing has the evil character done? o How can the superhero save the day? o Which levels must the superhero go through to save the day? o What happens in the end? Groups could then use their prompts to create a simple story using words and images, like Press Start.

Share your little ones’ finished stories with us on social media, by tagging us @NosyCrow! You never know, we might even share a selection on our channels …

Young readers can level up into SUPER READERS with our Press Start Reading Record!

We hope you enjoyed the second instalment of our Nosy Crow Kids’ Club! Be sure to let us know if your little ones partake in our activities, and if there’s anything else you would like us to include, by getting in touch via email or social media.
