Thank you so much. This pack is so informative. Such great ideas and variety. It has saved me so much time. It's 9 o'clock Saturday morning and my english lesson for next week is planned so I get to have a week-end. Thank you so very much guys.

Invaluable resource

My students were struggling with this writing genre (which surprised me a little) but after I used the examples and we deconstructed them from the pack, their writing went to the next level.
Thanks again to you both for creating authentic and engaging activities for classroom use

I love all these packs, they are bright so that th children like to look at them and stand out on our working wall. They are easy to follow and say exactly what I need them to say/do. It has saved me hours of planning time which means I can focus more on helping the children and coming up with more exciting ideas! Thank you!

Fab recount resources!

This is a great pack to use for introducing recount writing. It is clear and easy for children of all levels and abilities to understand. It was very useful in my Year 3 class and helped us to produce some fantastic writing! Thank you.

First Steps Resource; Recount Writing

An excellent resource to use with the First Steps approach to writing. The resources here use and explain the key terms very effectively. The differentiated levels for the texts are also very useful for ensuring that all children are able to access the features of this writing genre. The checklists are very useful for the kids as well!

Recount Writing Pack

Great pack but would be really useful to have an editable version(Word) of the recount examples so that I could do a shared edit with the children on the interactive whiteboard. Also I could then create a version with deliberate mistakes(based on AFL of my class).

Thank you

Wonderful resource for First Steps

I love this resource,we use First Steps writing program in our school and I found this so helpful in using age appropriate examples of recount writing.Its all there ,texts to model with , worksheets and tasks to use with groups or individuals if you prefer in a simple structured way.I could have made some of these but it would have taken far too much time.These are like something made my a class teacher .V functional

good for display and examples of recounts

This collection is ideal for display. For activities there are some examples of recounts, check lists and writing frames. There are also activity cards that give a stimulus, although these lack a visual. Another resource answers the question words to give note form of a recount.
