Welcome to ‘The Quick-Fire Write’. These short challenges are perfect for sending home to isolated learners or carrying out in class.

Each video follows the same format of posing a topical question, watching a short video and then responding to question stimuli to write a 200 word response.

These are a perfect way to engage learners with exam style question prompts or build up focused writing stamina.

“Upon viewing the first video with lesson one, my class was hooked, and upon seeing the clear success criteria, so was I. From a teacher perspective, I appreciated that everything for the whole project was so well organised.”
