Write About My Street (All About Me Writing Prompts) (7-11 years)

The child uses the mural that Mrs Barker’s class made to make a map of their area. The child is asked to complete the sentences to describe their own area. They then complete the sentences to describe their street and neighbourhood.

Write A Story Called ‘Camping Out On A Summers Night’

Read the poem (written in rhyming couplets). Write the story about the day Isaac and Josh camped out at night.

Describe Places Adding Details To Create Settings

The child is asked to describe a place. They are shown how to add little details to build up the setting, to help the reader picture the place in his or her mind.

Describe The Characters In My Street

Describe the characters in your street using little details to create word pictures of the people.

Read the funny rhymes and use the characters in them to write a story. Did the child find the examples of similes, onomatopoeia and adjectives?

The child can then answer the 34 questions to help them write about their road and neighbours.

This series provides prompts to get the child to write. It provides starting points to encourage children of all abilities to write – even the most reluctant writers. With this series they will be inspired to write stories, poems, play scripts, diaries, reports, persuasive leaflets and more.

More than this, the child will learn writing techniques; simple, compound and complex sentences, connectives and spelling, punctuation and grammar tips. There is an emphasis on improving vocabulary – looking at lots of better word choices: harder adjectives, more powerful verbs and adverbs.

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.
