This comprehensive pack includes high-impact resources linked to a wide range of essential writing genres relevant to all Key Stage 2 pupils.

Each writing project includes a powerful visual stimulus in the form of a short animated film, which can be used to encourage the pupils to think, interact, discuss, question and apply a range of skills. A unique audio-visual planning process along with short and long writing activities complement the National Curriculum.

The lessons provide many opportunities for discussion, oral rehearsal, spoken presentation and feedback.

All of the activities encompass many features of best practice in teaching transferable writing skills and have been developed based on approaches which provide comprehensive evidence of impact.
