Year 6 pupils create website on Myst

Year 6 at Benenden Primary school have been looking at non-chronological texts, and have used the website for Sark (www.sark.info) to inspire them to design a website for J'nanin, one of the worlds in Myst 3. The children always look forward to each visit back to the world of Myst with great enthusiasm, and it has stimulated their literacy, thinking, speaking and listening skills, particularly in the area of exploratory talk ("Could it be...", "Maybe..." "Perhaps...").
The children have imagined the island as a real location, and thought about what visitors would need to know. They have learned about creating a website; how to write clear, interesting text for it; how to link pages and insert images. I have learned a lot as well!
