Use The Senses To Write (7-11 years)
In this pack, the child is taught to use their senses (sight, taste, smell, hearing and touch) in their writing. They should add their own ideas to ‘I love to’ and ‘I hate to’. After this, the child should read the example and then write about a journey that they have undertaken. Then, they are asked to make up some questions to interview a pop star or celebrity that they absolutely love. They should use the Internet to research their life.
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.
