Brilliant Activities for Creative Writing, Year 1 provides a flexible, but structured resource for developing writing skills, which both you and your pupils will enjoy. The activities help children to develop writing skills for different genres, from narrative and poetry to recounts and persuasive writing. The sheets are self-explanatory and ready to use; the only additional resources needed are a pen or pencil and, sometimes, extra paper. Hint boxes provide extra support for the children in completing the task. The teacher tip boxes provide useful ideas and suggestions for making the most of the activities.
