  Commonwealth Games - Writing Relay  
  The beginnings of two sporting stories with a Commonwealth Games theme. Story one has drop down menus for certain words, so the children can choose from the various options, to create a 'customised' beginning. Story two displays the first chapter, and invites the children to submit the next two or three chapters. The model of the baton in a relay race is used, with the story changing hands from writer to writer, as more chapters are added
