‘I Hate Horrible Hairy Spiders’. Write The Story (Likes And Dislikes Writing Prompts) 7-11 years
The child should read the pages, to help him or her plan and structure a story in three paragraphs (with a beginning, a middle and an end). The child should read the story of the ‘horrible, hairy spider’ and complete the last paragraph, winding the story up. The child should use the ideas given to write his or her own creepy crawly or crocodile and alligators story.
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 11+ exams or S.A.T.s. They will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
