…from a dictionary and a map, to a ruler that I snapped!
There are few things I remember from being at school, but what I do remember is occasionally receiving educational gifts from my teachers at the start of a new year, from a dictionary and a map, to a ruler that I snapped! Accidently, of course.
Nowadays, however, school funding is somewhat lacking per capita, which is why we are GIVING AWAY a handy reference booklet for developing writing skills which, if you choose, can be gifted to your new year 5 and 6 pupils at the beginning of the new academic year.
This little booklet can be printed and bound to make a useful reference source for pupils, or sheets can be given individually to pupils as and when required.
Reluctant writers or those who struggle with the organisation of their ideas can express themselves with more self-assurance by using the information in these reference pages. Confident writers can also benefit by delving into them to gain further ideas.
The booklet contains hints and tips on: the dos and don’ts for planning; planning and organizing story writing; building-up description: characters; building up description: setting; using imagery tick involving the senses v creating suspense or excitement; replacing over-used words with powerful verbs; the different ways to start sentences: using connectives; checking punctuation
