FURTHER CURRICULUM BANK ACTIVITIES: WRITING. By Wendy Joliffe and David Waugh. Key Stages 1 and 2. Scholastic pound;12.99 each. SCHOLASTIC LITERARY SKILLS: Vocabulary Term-by-Term photocopiables. Age 7-8. Age 8-9. Age 9-10. Age 10-11. Scholastic pound;10.99 each.

The Curriculum Bank writing activities follow the National Curriculum demands in writing for both key stages. They are carefully organised, with photocopiable worksheets and good lessn plans and they cover a wide range of purposes, styles and genres. A good investment.

The vocabulary photocopiables are similarly thorough. For each year there is a different theme, each based on the concept of exploration, and a "Word Explorer" booklet where children build up personal wordbanks. The main books include a "Treasure Test" on target words for each term.
