Review of Jumpstart Storymaking-
"This is my second purchase of books from the Jumpstart range. I bought Jumpstart literacy last year and use it so much felt i needed some more of Pie's wonderful activities. Jumpstart storymaking is a must for KS2 literacy lessons and classrooms in particular though many activities would be easily adaptable for ks1. The activities are divided into sentence, character, setting, storymaking, story reading and allow you to tailor appropriate games to the start of your lessons. All are easily explained and where resources are need you, Pie virtually tells you what you need and you just need to make the little cards with words on etc.... The activities also inspire ideas of my own which probably wouldnt arrive without Pie's initial stimulus.
The introductory chapter is very useful in underlying his ideas and methodology around story-writing and how it should be nurtured. As always, written in Pie's easy to understand but incredibly informative way. Jumpstart Poetry next no doubt!"
