Fantastic way to help your child
on 9 October 2009
My son has just started year 2 and we wanted to help him with his story writing skills. The book is well within his capabilities. His school are focusing on creative writing and the use of adjectives and this helped us to understand what the school will be looking for at the end of the year when he sits his SATs.
It gave us specific exercises for him to do rather than just asking him to write a story about a pirate. It shows them how to add interest to their story telling, plotting it out first before jumping straight in. The use of tense, descriptions, aliteration etc.
Our son is in a very good school but only in middle set. The book does rely on them being able to read to a good level but we helped him out with anything too lengthy.
