    Is there a book for key stage 2, (7-11) that covers types of stories for children (short stories) e.g. different genres- science fiction, fairy tale, adventure etc.? It needs to shows them examples of each and be suitable for that age group. Any ideas?

    Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for, but there's a collection of books called 'Short and Shocking', 'Short and Scary' etc. I don't know if they cover the whole range of genres, but I understand there's one just called 'Short', which could be the kind of thing you're looking for... And they are aimed at upper KS2 age, I believe.

    Is this for recognizing genres in reading or to be able to write different genres?

    Fantastic the 'Short' story idea I've ordered it and will give it a go. I am trying to demonstrate different genres through short stories. Thanks for your help, I'm a new user so getting to grips with this.
