Inside the Talk4Writing booklet below, you will find lots of activities to work through that will help with your writing skills and build on the work and writing scheme you do at school. This booklet is not designed to be completed in one go but rather over a couple of weeks.


Below is a list of which activities are to be completed on which days.
