The updated edition of this innovative handbook aims to help all children from 4 - 11 years old to write creatively. The strong visual emphasis will inspire children to write their own stories and broaden their vocabulary, while narrative planning material explores story development and shows how links can be made. Writer's tips front each of the twelve story elements: characters; feelings; size; speech & sound; speed; settings; texture; colours; objects; time; and weather.
Other key features include:
- simple layout and award-winning design that will appeal to children and ESL Students;
- photocopiable storyboards at the beginning of each section to encourage children to sequence;
- a separate introduction for older children who can work alone.
This is an inspiring resource that can be used to deliver the National Curriculum Literacy objectives across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
