Make Up Your Own Story

Here are some ideas to help you write your own stories

The First Time You See the Woodland

Imagine you are a badger cub. For the first four weeks of your life you have been tucked up safe and secure, warm and dry inside your underground nesting chamber. Then your Mum says, "tonight, darling, we are going to leave the sett for the first time"....
  • Write about what you might see, smell and taste for the first time.

Your First Big Adventure

You are a badger cub. You have been coming out to play at night, and have been having all sorts of fun with your brothers, and sisters and cousins. Your Mum and Dad have been showing you want to eat and where to get it from. Now, they are taking you on a great big adventure. You are patrolling around the territory. ...
  • Describe this new adventure.

Some-Ones Wrecking the Woodland

You are the head of a small family of badgers at the edge of the woodland. All seems well, but one afternoon you are wakened by a load of crashing about and heavy thumping noises from above. It seems like some-one is chopping the trees down....
  • Write about what you need to do to to move your family to a new sett around the other side the woodland.

Imagine you are a badger cub who becomes a human!

A badger cub has awakened from a very strange dream in which he has changed from a badger cub into a human. Imagine all the new things that he will experience as he goes playing football and games in the park; rides on equipment in the playground and has a birthday treat at a McDonalds fast food restaurant.

  • Take about what is new and, perhaps, a little bit scary...
