Write Like a Ninja provides children with all the vocabulary and grammar they need to become brilliant writing ninjas, as well as a handy list of Alan Peat's exciting sentences to help them vary their writing. Designed to be used independently by Key Stage 2 pupils, this is a must-have pocketbook for children to use in the classroom and at home.
Fully aligned to the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum, this neat little book allows children to take ownership of their writing. From examples of metaphors, similes and superlatives to verbs, conjunctions and adjectives, this is a book that children can refer to again and again to grow their confidence and gain independence in their writing. There are suggestions for avoiding commonly-used words, and vocabulary lists for describing specific settings, like haunted houses or cities and villages, as well as characters, technology, food and drink and more.
