All Kinds of Writing (KS2, 7 - 11 years)


The picture books in this collection have been selected for their potential to inspire and stimulate children's writing.

Covering a range of genres:, including letter writing, diaries, scrapbooks and recipes, this is an invaluable collection for the busy teacher looking for inspiring ways to teach different types of writing.

This selection also includes books that invite you to explore different types of narrative. For instance, Allan Ahlberg's ingenious 'Previously' shows that a story doesn't always have to start at the beginning. Instead of asking, 'What next?', we could ask 'What happened before that?', Colin Thompson's 'Castles' is a great starting point for creating settings, which can then be used in story writing. The gorgeous large format book 'Maps' could be used to look at different ways in which we can create maps and would make an interesting comparison with a more traditional map making format.

There are 20 books in this collection. 1 each of 20 different titles.
