This work book includes 2 packs:

- Write A Story Called 'The Summer Barbecue'

Ask the child to read Gareth and Gemma's stories. Then, read the plans for these stories. Make sure the child sees that each sentence starts in a new way. Now, they should write their own story about a summer barbecue or alternatively, a trip to the supermarket, where things didn't go quite to plan.

- Lots Of Writing Tasks About Being Out And About

The child should read the radio script from Guinea Pig Radio and learn about dialogue, as presenters George and Christabelle chat. Next, the child is asked to write a text or e-mail to the shows feature 'Love To Be There', describing the most exciting places they have visited. Alternatively, the child could write a radio script of a phone conversation between themselves and the presenter, describing an incredible event they have experienced.

Next, the child is asked to imagine what the other listeners who contact the radio show are like. They should use their experiences to write some stories with characters, setting and plot.

Now, the child is asked to think up some outstanding verbs to add to the 'I am' list. The child will learn more about varying their sentences and the use of sub clauses in complex sentences.

This series provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers. In fact, the writer regularly dips into these packs for her own tutorial classes. With their lively 'magazine style' format, they are an ideal study aid to consolidate work on planning and writing stories and non fiction articles, expanding vocabulary and include many examples of children's work. As well as this, the packs contain some very useful tips on writing techniques (as in writing simple, compound and complex sentences). The work in these packs will inspire children, who are practicing for exams, to write, and provide starting points for even the most reluctant writer, including those children with special educational needs and where English is a second language.
