Doncaster Stories weekly writing challenges

Doncaster Stories created a brand new series of writing challenges for children to complete during the lockdown period.

Every Monday (during term time) we released a new writing challenge inspired by Doncaster. It might be that a local landmark or statue comes to life, or maybe there was an alien invasion, or a friendly ghost in Cusworth Hall.

The challenges were an opportunity for children to be creative about their home town, whilst making use of their literacy skills until schools reopened.

We posted a new challenge on this page every Monday and featured some of the entries on our website, so keep your eyes peeled!

Entries for the below challenges have now closed but feel free to complete the activities anyway. You can send any of your work to and we may share it on our Facebook page.
