The Brilliant Activities for Creative Writing series of books provides a flexible, but structured resource for developing writing skills, which both you and your pupils will enjoy. The activities address many of the Programmes of Study for writing composition in the 2014 National Curriculum for England for primary schools. The activities help children to develop writing skills for different genres, from narrative and poetry to recounts and persuasive writing. The sheets are self-explanatory and ready to use; the only additional resources needed are a pen or pencil and, sometimes, extra paper. Hint boxes provide extra support for the children in completing the task. Word processing on a computer would be a bonus. The teacher tip boxes provide useful ideas and suggestions for making the most of the activities.
