Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree: Y6/P7: TreeTops Storywriter 4: Pupil Book by Kate Ruttle, Pie Corbett

TreeTops Storywriter is part of a structured reading programme for juniors from Oxford Reading Tree, Levels 9-16 and comprises: CD-ROMs, Pupils' Books and Teacher's Guides, one for each year group from Year 3/P4-Year 6/P7. Each TreeTops Storywriter Pupil Book supports children through the clear five-step story writing process demonstrated on the CD-ROM. The Pupil book contains ideas and advice on creating characters, settings and plots, and the key features of each fiction text type are clearly identified and explained. Each pupil book contains a Writer's Toolkit section, a handy reference bank to help children with the basics of grammar and punctuation, settings and characters. Used alongside the CD-ROM, this invaluable writing tool puts the fun back into story writing through ICT, and makes the worry of a blank sheet of paper a thing of the past.

Reviews

The approach is clear and straightforward with instructions in user-friendly speech. Its great strength is that it combines some easy-to-use, ready-prepared materials with the capacity to edit and build up one's own resources. Mavis Humphreys, Literacy Consultant, Staffordshire Links to the NLS are clear and the text types in the Pupil Book are fully appropriate. The clarity of the writing process is a real strength. Jackie Woodward, Leading Literacy Teacher and Literacy Consultant, Cambridgeshire This is an ideal way of making sure that ICT is really embedded in literacy teaching. As a SENCO I especially liked the frequent opportunities for differentiation that really addressed the needs of the less able pupil. I would definitely want to use this as a resource with my class...It would raise teacher confidence levels and raise the standards of children's independent story writing. Kathleen Horwood, Deputy Head and Class Teacher, Suffolk
