Children's web pages

These pages were all written by Foxhill Primary School. They learned to write HTML by hand, using Notepad2 for Windows, then they added color (and lots of it!) using the Nvu web editor. All the images on their pages (and indeed on this website) were taken by the children using digital cameras. Their images were then enhanced using the GIMP graphics package.

Each page contains a peice of creative writing which the children wrote with the help of Sheffield writer Beverly Ward. In addition, each group wrote an advert - which they later turned into an animated web advert with GIMP.

Encouraged by Beverly, the group also worked together on a poem: A-Z of Transport.

Finally, we would like to make available some of the teaching notes which helped us with our creative writing - a word bank and a list of 'moving' verbs.
