Our 12-session "Creative Writing Tasks" course has been specially designed for Years 4-6 children (8-11 year olds). It supports those taking the 11+ examinations, as well as all children wanting to improve their writing skills. This course follows on from our original course, "Core Skills and Story Writing". It is recommended that your child attends our "Core Skills and Story Writing" course first although it is not essential. Our "Writing for Different Purposes" course can be taken before or after this one. If your child has not completed the "Core Skills and Story Writing Course" before this course, then we recommend you purchase our Creative Writing Skills book and look over the skills and techniques before joining this course. 

Different 11+ entrance examinations (both grammar and independent schools) vary in what they ask children to write. This course aims to explore the variety of writing tasks in order to allow children to learn how to structure each style of task confidently within a given time frame.


Course Details:
Each session, the children will respond to a creative writing challenge, many of which are based on past 11+ writing tasks.

  • Write a recount
  • Write a speech/letter (persuasive non-fiction)

Within each lesson, the children will learn vocabulary to help with their writing, as well as how to enhance their writing through the use of devices such as figurative language, Show Don't Tell, senses and more! The children will also practise structuring sentences and varying their sentence openers.
