Naace Impact Award for his work in the field of e-safety. "Chris has been formally recognised for revolutionising
opportunities for independent learning and for developing rigorous processes for e-safety training." Naace, 2013.

Night Zookeeper
The World's Number 1 Writing Improvement Tool

"My students were able to make a


year's worth of progress with their

their involvement with and
enthusiasm for Night Zookeeper"
- Emma Cotton, Class Teacher,
Langham Village Primary School

Night Zookeeeper is a beautiful digital platform dedicated


to supporting children to become better, more
creative writers.
Children are encouraged to write at school and at home as
they battle through a series of adventures in the Night Zoo,
collecting Mystical Animals and defeating monsters on their
travels.
Teachers can assign writing challenges or simply allow
children to write freely across a wide range of text types, all
of which are easy to assess against English National
Curriculum objectives with the Online Assessment Toolkit.

Write
The writing tool suggests age appropriate vocabulary for children to include in their stories. It also provides objectives
and helpful tips in order to provide structure to their creative writing.

Assess
All writing produced by your
students appears in your Online
Assessment Toolkit. This tool
allows you to send comments to
your students and assess
against National Curriculum
objectives.

enterprise"

100 Word Challenge


Working in partnership with Night Zookeeper
100 Word Challenge is a FREE creative writing challenge for
children, which harnesses the power of the Night Zookeeper
writing platform.
Each week, retired Headteacher Julia Skinner posts an
interesting writing prompt to ignite children's curiosity and to
inspire them to write creative responses. The prompt could be
an image, a sentence or just a few words.
Children are challenged to submit their written responses in
just 100 words.
A group of adults, known as Team 100WC, provide
constructive feedback on their writing each week, so there is
ongoing motivation for them to write for their truly global
audience.
