Resource Description

This resource shows children how to structure and develop a story. First, the child reads the story about ‘Monster‘. Then, they are shown an outline of how the story was planned – the characters, setting and plot. Secondly, they are shown the content of each paragraph: the beginning paragraph (setting the scene), the middle paragraph (recounting a series of events that build up suspense) and the ending, in this case a happy ending and the situation is resolved. An outline allows the child to write their ‘Monster’ story themselves, by completing the sentences.

Next, they can use what they have learnt to write a story called ‘looking after a naughty pet’.

This lesson will take approximately 1 hour.

This resource is featured in the book ‘We Love Animals: Get Going With Creative Writing’ series.

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 examinations. The packs will also benefit children with special needs, or where English is a second language.
