Summary Written by an experienced NAPLAN* marker, teacher and school Principal, this book will help parents and teachers prepare children for the writing section of the English NAPLAN programme. The activities, focusing on both narratives and persuasive essays, will empower teachers and parents to address the new wiriting genre and will ensure that children are aware of essential skills required in the writing of narratives and persuasive essays. Including both genres within one book will also encourage children to recognise the differences between the two. This is the first book in a two-part series that will make a valuable addition to any teacher's classroom resources -- back cover
