The writing activities in this book are all based around a birthday party. A group of friendly woodland animals offer writers the opportunity to practise a wide variety of writing tasks such as writing invitations, shopping lists, poems, directions, stories and thank you letters. All the activities are presented in an approachable, engaging way. All activities reinforce English teaching in schools. There is a practice page and 'secret' notes for grown-ups in a gatefold at the back of the book. Comes with a special wipe-clean pen which is very satisfying to write with, and easy to wipe off the shiny pages offering young writers free rein to draft and redraft their writing. Part of the hugely successful Usborne Wipe-clean series, the Key Skills titles teach children the basics of a variety of Maths, English and Science topics.
