Friendly jungle animals guide children through lots of fun activities in this wipe-clean book, all designed to reinforce comprehension skills. With the focus on fun, young writers can practise all kinds of writing, from lists and recipes to stories and poems. Each activity is clearly presented and children are encouraged to extend their writing skills. All activities reinforce English teaching in schools, and reflect the National Curriculum. 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.
