Crack the Code - English

This box aims to inspire the creative writing process through use of objects as prompts and encourages students to relate this to texts they are currently studying by looking at how character possessions aid characterisation. Learners will pick from a random selection of items and answer questions to build the character who owned the object, before writing a short piece of creative writing.
