Suitable for Years 1-6, each of the short videos sets up a context or narrative that can stimulate children's creative writing and storytelling activities.

An alluring jewellery shop, a ghostly graveyard, and a tunnel with a warning are just three of the exciting story starts included.

Adviser and deputy headteacher Simon Botten introduces the video, providing tips on how best to use these resources.

      I felt a little eerie watching these video clips, especially with the accompanying sounds. I realise these are meant to be 'dramatic' but would it be possible to create videos that don't tend toward scary stories?

      Perhaps the dinosaur scene could appear more scientific with sounds of awe in the background rather than musical instruments used to set a murder scene or for the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ apprehension; the child in these clips is often alone in a forest, beach or grave yard, maybe the sound of a friend’s laughter or amazement as they discover new adventures would create a happier rather than gothic note; the 'pandorra's box should perhaps have a happy little girl's voice rather than a spooky one calling out to her?
