Write An Information Leaflet About The Amazon Rainforest
Use the prompts and illustrations to produce an information leaflet about the Amazon Rainforest. The child should arrange their leaflet under the headings:
Where is the Amazon rainforest?
What is the climate like?
What is life in the canopy like?
What is the shrub layer like?
What is it like on the forest floor?
Next, the child can fill in the rainforest chart
This series provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers.
Written in a lively magazine style format, each pack provides a step by step guide to teach children how to plan and write an animal themed story.
The packs also provide starting points to write e-mails, letters, play scripts, diaries, reports and other non fiction texts.
The child will learn writing techniques; simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and spelling, punctuation and grammar tips. There is an emphasis on improving vocabulary - looking at lots of better word choices: harder adjectives, more powerful verbs and adverbs.
This series is recommended for use with children between the ages of 7-11 and provides writing practice for those children preparing to take 11+ examinations or S.A.T.s. The packs will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
