Boost Creative Writing for 9-11 Year Olds Planning Sheets to Support Writers (Especially SEN Pupils) in Years 5-6 by Judith Thornby

Boost Creative Writing for 9-11 Year Olds addresses the Year 5 and Year 6 Programmes of Study for writing composition in the new (2014) National Curriculum for England. The activities provide additional reinforcement of key skills for slower learners and a structured framework to enable them to talk about their writing. SEN pupils and slower learners need extra support to help them to become confident writers. The structured planning sheets in Boost Creative Writing provide SEN pupils with non-prescriptive writing scaffolds, giving them the support they need. The sheets cover a range of writing genres, from stories and poems to book reviews and newspaper reports. Written by Judith Thornby, an experienced Learning Support Coordinator, the sheets have been extensively trialled and tested. They have been shown to boost children's writing skills, give pupils confidence and make them believe that they can write. While designed for SEN pupils these sheets can, and have, been used by pupils of all abilities.
