Do you copy?
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.
