Write About What Scares Me Most (7-11 years)
The child should read the radio script from Guinea Pig radio and the dialogue between DJ George and his co presenter. Then, they should read the emails and messages sent in by the listeners, describing their nasty nightmares. The child should, then, develop some of these ideas into stories with three paragraphs. The child should write their own imaginary e-mail about what scares them or what they fear most. Finally, they should complete the ‘I am scared’ and ‘I am loving’ pages.This series provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers. Presented in a lively ‘magazine style’ format, these packs feature stories and non fiction texts to read. They include follow up activities that will inspire even the most reluctant writer, to write stories, letters, play scripts, diaries, poems, persuasive leaflets and more. More than this, the child will learn writing techniques including: simple, compound and complex sentences – connectives, grammar tips – harder vocabulary and punctuation.
Aimed at 7-11 year olds, these work packs provide excellent writing practice for those children preparing to take exams. They will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
