Welcome to the 100 Word Challenge!

Taking part is really simple.

  1. Watch the video (if you want to watch us launch the challenge live, then watch the livestream below at 10:45am BST). If you can’t watch it live, just click the play button any time after 11:00am BST on Monday.
  2. Draft your writing carefully.
  3. Fill in the form below the video (we recommend that you copy and paste your writing from your own word processor) and submit your writing.
  4. That’s it!

There are a few simple rules to abide by, and we won’t publish any work that contravenes these rules:

  • Don’t use coloured text;
  • Don’t use emojis and text speech;
  • Don’t use the spacebar to move to the next line-use the return key;
  • Always stick to the task, we won’t publish any writing not related to the instructions;
  • TeachingLive will inform your school if you abuse our system.
