Wicked Writing Skills has over 90 non-fiction activities for children

Writing is like a spell. It can melt hearts and fry brains, twisting and turning as the magic works.

Want the world to fall at your feet, destroyed by the might of your pen?

- Sharpen your powers of persuasion

- Sky-rocket your debating skills

- Add ooomph to your reports

- And lots more!

Packed with top tips, this awesome workbook has everything you need to know to become a WICKED WRITER.

Aimed at ages 7 - 11, Wicked Writing Skills follows on from the Creative Writing Skills workbook which looked at fiction writing. The focus of this workbook is non-fiction and there are plenty of opportunities to develop writing skills through tasks which involve writing for a purpose. Persuasive writing is encouraged through adverts, leaflets, questions which encourage opinions and debate. There are also opportunities for writing instructions, newspaper articles and generally improving the quality of writing. 

There is a great variety of activities which will appeal to the age group and which are relatable to their daily lives. As before, the illustrations are designed to catch the eye and spark the imagination. This is a great resource for encouraging writing skills.

Cat and Mouse say: it's wicked!
