Many pupils already know how to write simple sentences. Writing Exciting Sentences: Age 7 Plus will help pupils to write more varied sentences which engage and captivate the reader. Twenty-five different sentence types are described in the book. They have all been used, successfully, with pupils aged between seven and 14. Each sentence type is given a title, which should be used regularly with pupils, as it is one of the keys to remembering the sentence types. This is followed by some examples for class use, a brief explanation of the sentence type and a range of teaching 'tips' which have worked for teachers piloting the approach. The range will help pupils to use a varied range of sentence types at appropriate points in both their fiction and non-fiction writing.
