A mystery time traveller needs help.
He has returned from the year 2999, where the imminent arrival of the Millennium Bug will obliterate all electronic texts. In the absence of paper based texts and the loss of writing skills, the time traveller needs some scribes to help him save all texts.
So, Scribes to Save All Texts (SSATs) are recruited. Through video links with Time Traveller 27, the children in your class help to save the day by becoming SSATs, producing a range of fiction and non-fiction texts.
As the story unfolds, the SSATs write entries for the 2999 Domesday Book, design and explain how a time travel machine works and help the time traveller present a paper to his Grand Council on the pros and cons of moving entirely to a paper-based society.
Due to the amount of time spent watching the SSATs, the time traveller masters the art of handwriting and is promoted to Calligrapher in Chief. This means a move from his rather poky home-pod to a more up market residence so he asks the SSATs to write the advert for his home-pod.
However, it’s not just non-fiction texts that are under threat from the Millennium Bug – stories too could be lost forever. So, the SSATs are charged with the task of writing down some traditional tales and creating alternative versions.
