In this pack, the child is asked to work through a series of exercises to practice: retrieving information, punctuation, simple, compound and complex sentences, first and third person, connectives and parts of speech.
The child is asked to plan a circus story, developing their ideas under headings. They should use the prompts to develop further ideas and write a story with a beginning (introducing characters, setting and plot), a middle and an ending.
Next, they should write an argument voicing their opinion on whether they agree or disagree with animals performing in the circus. After this, they should make an acrostic poem.
This series of work packs provides prompts to encourage children to write. It provides starting points, to encourage even the most reluctant writers. Featuring a lively, ‘magazine style’ format to appeal to children of all abilities, these packs are particularly recommended as preparation for creative writing tasks at 11+ or S.A.T.S.
The writer herself often dips into the lively collection of imaginative stories and non fiction articles, to teach her students in tutorials. The packs feature detailed prompts on how to plan and write stories and letters, as well as help with non fiction tasks – writing diaries, reports and persuasive leaflets. There is also plenty of practice in writing techniques – variation of sentences, connectives and grammar and punctuation tips.
The work packs are ideal for home study and will reinforce the work done in school. They may be purchased in any order. There are a number of titles to choose from. By working through the packs, the student will grow in confidence and will learn to enjoy writing. The packs are also a useful resource for teachers and save hours of time when preparing lessons or homework tasks.

Guinea Pig Education
GUINEA PIG EDUCATION HOW IT STARTED…
In 1990, Sally, a classroom teacher of thirty years experience, started a private tuition business – teaching children, of all abilities, one to one.
She felt there was insuﬃcient material on the market, to suit the needs of individual pupils and began writing her own schemes of work.
In 2004, these schemes were developed into text books and sold to clients of GPE tuition and local parents.
Over the years the Guinea Pig range has grown considerably. Today, our 75 plus books and 500 plus teaching resources are sold in retail stores, educational establishments and online, both in print format and digitally across the globe. We are absolutely delighted to have been able to encourage and inspire so many children across the world to love learning. It is our absolute honour and privilege.
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT INSPIRING ALL CHILDREN TO LOVE LEARNING.
GUINEA PIG EDUCATION Creative Writing Books
Our creative writing books are designed to help children express their ideas; to make their imagination run wild; and to encourage them to write.
We believe in saturating even the most reluctant writers (whose minds go blank) with ideas and good vocabulary.
Our resources are successful because they employ the same unique strategies that are used in Sally Anne’s one-to-one private lessons.
Working through our books is like have a private tutor at your side, which is why they are so successful at building confidence and motivating students of all ages.
GUINEA PIG EDUCATION Phonic Reading Materials
An eight year old boy, called William, is the reason the Guinea Pig reading scheme exists. He was a very reluctant reader, who had barely made a start in acquiring literacy, but with our scheme he had ﬂuency in nine months.
Our Learn To Read With Phonics reading scheme is a fast, fun way to teach a child to learn to read, in only 8 books. It uses an intensive course of systematic phonics.
It has helped hundreds of struggling readers become ﬂuent in a few months.
