Children, teachers, parents and more on Flowing Tales
It’s great for us to hear how Flowing Tales has made an impact or just helped to make writing fun.
I feel as if my imagination has grown! Since the first day ideas have been popping into my head and this has inspired me to write and write!
Isobel year 3
As my handwriting isn’t the neatest I thought at the start I wouldn’t ever win but soon learnt that it wouldn’t matter! Strangely my handwriting has improved too!
Phillip, year 6
I didn’t really use paragraphs before. Now I know when to use them and use them all the time!
Jasper, year 4
I improved my creative skills. It’s made me want to write more!
Albert, year 3
I really enjoyed reading the notes from the Camp Leader. I think my spelling has improved too.

My Daughter (8) loved doing this, she enjoyed the interaction with the other children in the group, the sharing of ideas and the encouragement she received to be as creative as she could be, to take this story in whatever direction she thought it should go in. Thank you Flowing Tales!

Wow!!!! My 8 year old has just started flowing tales as a lunch time club at school. It has been hugely inspiring for her, helping her to generate creative ideas, characters and improve her writing. But the best bit is that it is SO much fun!!
She loves using the computer and the software is fantastic!!! It has definitely given her a love of writing back and the feedback has encouraged her so much. Would massively recommend!!!
My 9 year old found Flowing Tales to be a challenging, yet engaging club. She especially enjoyed the collaborative working aspect as it developed her confidence to assess and review her own and other’s work. She enjoyed the personal feedback, the novelty factor (as it didn’t feel like learning) and it helped her learn new keyboard and computer skills.

The children at West Jesmond Primary School have loved the club and there has often been a waiting list. Flowing Tales analysis of pupil work is very thorough and pupils take real pride in their finished work. Boys, in particular love the draw of delivery via ICT and this was certainly noticed when we were inspected by Ofsted and the ICT was full at lunch time with boys writing away at their computers!
It’s a great tool and team to work with. I’d strongly recommend them.

My son (8) really enjoys his Flowing Tales Club. He was practicing his writing before he even started the club he was so excited. His teacher says his writing has really improved. This is his second one now and he wants to write all the time! His teacher says he has changed his behaviour in class too.
