Product Description
Let's Describe A Pet

The child is asked to read the prompts on Hugo the rabbit and Henriki the cat and then to write about their own pet. They are asked to describe their pet - it's appearance, character and actions.

Write To Persuade People To Get A Pet

Read the information leaflet about getting a pet. The child is asked to write their own version, persuading pet lovers to get a kitten. They can use the prompts to help them get started. They must remember to use good adjectives in their description, to use alliteration and repetition of initial letter sounds, to form persuasive phrases like 'cutest cuddliest kitten...'

Next, the child should read 'New Home' and write their own persuasive appeal, encouraging people to give money to a charity that helps sick or abandoned animals.

This series provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers.

Written in a lively magazine style format, each pack provides a step by step guide to teach children how to plan and write an animal themed story.

The packs also provide starting points to write e-mails, letters, play scripts, diaries, reports and other non fiction texts.

The child will learn writing techniques; simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and spelling, punctuation and grammar tips. There is an emphasis on improving vocabulary - looking at lots of better word choices: harder adjectives, more powerful verbs and adverbs.

This series is recommended for use with children between the ages of 7-11 and provides writing practice for those children preparing to take 11+ examinations or S.A.T.s. The packs will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
