Kids’ Club January 2024

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

Our writing prompt this month takes inspiration from British Museum: Roman Soldiers – a complete guide to life in the Roman army, filled with fascinating facts and grisly detail, by Tegen Evans & Tom Froese.

Write a story where the main character is charging into battle as a Roman. 
What are they wearing? What weapons are they carrying? How many people are in their Legion? Who are they going into battle against? Use your imagination to think about how the battle will unfold and what tactics they might use.

Activity Sheets

Young readers can organise your own Roman Army and find out some amazing facts about Roman soldiers in these free activity sheets! Download the resources here.

Be sure to let us know if your young readers and illustrators partake in our activities. Please do share drawings, book reviews, or stories with us via email or @nosycrow on social media.
