The New Headteacher: Write A Letter (Essential Writing Practice) (9-13 years)
Use the planning sheets to write non fiction letters (to argue). Read the letter from the headteacher about the new timetable and then write an email to reply. Use the prompts to help you form an opinion. Next, help form a radical new school timetable. Write your own formal letter from the headteacher, explaining the changes. After this, write a formal reply from a parent, giving different points of view.
An essential series of themed prompts to help children aged 9-12 years to practise their creative writing skills for 11 plus entry exams or S.A.T.S. The packs include an outline to help the child plan his or her own story, article, letter or play script and examples to build on, using harder more challenging vocabulary to stretch more able pupils.
