Write About My Street (7-11 years)
The child uses the mural that Mrs Barker’s class made to make a map of their area. The child is asked to complete the sentences to describe their own area. They then complete the sentences to describe their street and neighbourhood.
Write A Story Called ‘Camping Out On A Summers Night’
Read the poem (written in rhyming couplets). Write the story about the day Isaac and Josh camped out at night.
Describe Places Adding Details To Create Settings
The child is asked to describe a place. They are shown how to add little details to build up the setting, to help the reader picture the place in his or her mind.
Describe The Characters In My Street
Describe the characters in your street using little details to create word pictures of the people.
Read the funny rhymes and use the characters in them to write a story. Did the child find the examples of similes, onomatopoeia and adjectives?
The child can then answer the 34 questions to help them write about their road and neighbours.
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.
