Summary Aimed at Key Stages 2 and 3, "Just Imagine" presents a wide range of resources as stimulus material for creative writing - from text by popular children's authors to photographs, illustrations and paintings as well as instrumental music and soundscapes. The book is organised in three sections: text and themes - seven theme-based sections on memories, dreams, school life, friendships, outsiders, journeys and time; images - photographs and illustrations in a variety of styles and genres, covering a range of themes including characters, landscapes, moods and objects; music - teachers' notes to accompany the CD sold with the book, which features instrumental tracks and soundscapes of different styles, moods, genres and tempos composed performed and recorded by James Carter and Mark Hawkins. A detailed set of activities accompanies each of the selected pieces, and teachers will be able either to follow these, or to use the material in any way they choose.
