Free Writing Friday


What is Free Writing Friday?

 World Book Day & Author Cressida Cowell aim to inspire children to write whatever they choose in a designated notebook


Cressida Cowell said: ‘The idea came organically from the response I give to hundreds of teachers, parents and kids who have asked me in events what I think is the one thing they can do to encourage creative thinking. My answer always is: every child should have one notebook that no one corrects, in which the child writes and draws purely for the joy of it. Children are naturally creative and imaginative thinkers, but can get put off writing by the corrective red pen. In this one notebook, spelling, grammar and neatness should be completely irrelevant – what’s important should be the ideas, and that it’s fun.



So grab your books and get writing!
