'Should be in every classroom' PIERS TORDAY 'Empowers children to be creative, perseverant and write independently' TEACH PRIMARY 'A must-have book for any young writer' JANE CONSIDINE 'An imaginative and affordable resource that every classroom should have' CLASS READS If you're looking for an emergency literacy curriculum in a handy, pocket-sized book, then Write Like a Ninja is perfect for you. Crammed full of writing and grammar tips, prompts to get children thinking of rich alternatives and Alan Peat's exciting sentences, this gem of a book is perfect for children aged 7 upwards either as an invaluable classroom aid or a brilliant dip-in thesaurus to use at home. It contains everything a budding writer needs to flourish as an author and meet the demands of the National Curriculum. Fully aligned to the Key Stage 2 Curriculum for English, this engaging, easy-to-use book equips children with everything they need for real writing mastery. There are awesome alternatives for overused adjectives, as well as themed vocabulary lists for describing settings, characters, food and drink, and more. From examples of metaphors, similes and superlatives to verbs, conjunctions and adjectives, this is a user-friendly book that children will turn to again and again to build their own ideas and enrich their writing. This neat little book will save hours of time spent tracking down resources and finding examples for pupils, and empower children to write independently using rich vocabulary, varied language and exciting sentences - all leading to becoming top writing ninjas!
