Book 2 contains five units focusing on writing to express, writing to inform, writing to entertain, writing to explain, and writing to persuade. Exemplar texts with activities teach the language knowledge and skills necessary to write a final text of the same genre. Focused activities include comprehension, composition, grammar, punctuation, and word work. The write-on/wipe-off posters provide a large version of the exemplar texts. The teacher can annotate them during shared reading sessions while discussing genre and analysing content, structure and language features.
