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 importance of being able to read for meaning should never be underestimated. The ability to decode text is not enough. It is vital that children understand what they are reading. More importantly, it is fundamental that they enjoy what they are reading, so that they grow up to become lifelong readers. The passages in the Brilliant Activities for Reading Comprehension series are designed to do just that. They provide children with a variety of engaging, enjoyable texts that will grab their attention, and indeed their teacher's attention as well. The types of comprehension passages range from newspaper articles and dialogues, to plays, stories and poems. They gradually increase in difficulty as you progress though the book, and through the series, encouraging children to develop their ability to read for meaning and use a range of strategies to engage with the text. Tasks range from simple factual recall and vocabulary work to more open-ended questions enabling the reader to provide a more personal response. The cross-curricular activities provide a wealth of ideas for extending the passages further and are ideal for fast-finishers.

Boost Creative Writing for 7-9 Year Olds addresses the Year 3 and Year 4 Programmes of Study for writing composition in the new (2014) National Curriculum for England. The activities provide additional reinforcement of key skills for slower learners and a structured framework to enable them to talk about their writing. SEN pupils and slower learners need extra support to help them to become confident writers. The structured planning sheets in Boost Creative Writing provide SEN pupils with non-prescriptive writing scaffolds, giving them the support they need. The sheets cover a range of writing genres, from stories and poems to book reviews and newspaper reports. Written by Judith Thornby, an experienced Learning Support Coordinator, the sheets have been extensively trialled and tested. They have been shown to boost children's writing skills, give pupils confidence and make them believe that they can write. While designed for SEN pupils these sheets can, and have, been used by pupils of all abilities.
