Write About My Weekend (7-11 years)
Read the radio script, featuring DJ George and co presenter Christabelle. Read the paragraphs sent in by the listeners, saying what they will be doing this weekend. Now write your own paragraph to send in to the radio show.
This series provides prompts to get the child to write. It provides starting points to encourage children of all abilities to write – even the most reluctant writers. With this series they will be inspired to write stories, poems, play scripts, diaries, reports, persuasive leaflets and more.
More than this, the child will learn writing techniques; simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and spelling, punctuation and grammar tips. There is an emphasis on improving vocabulary – looking at lots of better word choices: harder adjectives, more powerful verbs and adverbs.
