This work book includes 2 packs:

- Imagine You Are An Old Toy And Write Your Story

In this pack, the child is asked to pretend they are some kind of old object, like a toy, hidden in the loft. Then, they should read the story and the sentence prompts given and write their own version of the story, describing how they were found and what happened after that.

- Imagine You Are An Old Person In A World That Has Changed: Write Your Story

The child is asked to write a story about being old in a world that has changed. They should read the prompts and the story plan and rewrite the story in good English. They should remember to vary their sentences, to make their writing interesting. A suggested beginning paragraph is given, to start them off.


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.
