This book offers children the opportunity to analyse and respond to many types of writing. It elicits their ideas in a supportive way and encourages them to re-draft their work until they are happy. Each activity is based on comprehension skills taught in schools and there is ample scope for the development of ideas, and for extension activities. All activities reinforce English teaching in schools, and reflect the National Curriculum. There is a practice page and 'secret' notes for grown-ups in a gatefold at the back of the book. Comes with a special wipe-clean pen which is very satisfying to write with, and easy to wipe. Part of the hugely successful Usborne Wipe-clean series, the Key Skills titles teach children the basics of a variety of Maths, English and Science topics.
