This brilliant book written by our very own David Horner is a must in every KS2 classroom.
The book contains 100+ tried and tested activities which will inspire Key Stage 2 children to write creatively. Each sheet begins with a worked example showing the kind of finished piece being aimed at. Then step-by-step instructions explain what young writers need to do to create their own piece of writing that they can be proud of. The aim throughout is for the writer to be independent and in charge of their own writing, not the other way round.
The activities take between 30 and 60 minutes each to complete and cover a great range of writing-related features and terms as well as some creative routes into the trickier aspects of the National Curriculum grammar requirements.
