Product Description

In this pack, the child is asked to think: who is my reader or audience, why am I writing or what's my purpose. They will learn that they can write formally (as to the council) or informally (as to a friend).

Next, the child will learn how to organise non fiction writing and how to retrieve information, at the same time as learning about the blue whale. They will learn how to organise their material under headings and sub headings. Then, they are asked to make an information leaflet on the Northern Bottlenose Whale. Their non fiction writing should include an introduction, several points written in paragraphs and a conclusion with a comment from the author.

This series of work packs provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers. Featuring a lively, 'magazine style' format to appeal to children of all abilities, these packs are particularly recommended as preparation for creative writing tasks at 11+ or S.A.T.S.

The writer herself often dips into the lively collection of imaginative stories and non fiction articles, to teach her students in tutorials. The packs feature detailed prompts on how to plan and write stories and letters, as well as help with non fiction tasks - writing diaries, reports and persuasive leaflets. There is also plenty of practice in writing techniques - variation of sentences, connectives and grammar and punctuation tips.

The work packs are ideal for home study and will reinforce the work done in school. They may be purchased in any order. There are a number of titles to choose from. By working through the packs, the student will grow in confidence and will learn to enjoy writing. The packs are also a useful resource for teachers and save hours of time when preparing lessons or homework tasks.
