Write Like A Ninja

Write Like A Ninja

Write Like a Ninja provides children with all the vocabulary and grammar they need to become writing ninjas, as well as a handy list of Alan Peat’s exciting sentences to help children vary their writing. Designed to be used independently by Key Stage 2 pupils, this is a must-have book for children to use in the classroom and at home.

Fully aligned to the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum, this pocket-sized 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.

Written by Andrew Jennings, creator of Vocabulary Ninja and Comprehension Ninja, this book will save teachers’ time spent looking for resources and thinking of examples to give to pupils, and empower children to write independently, vary their language and become writing ninjas.
