*Book now for Autumn 2021*
Our 12-week “Creative Writing: Writing for Different Purposes” course has been specially designed for Years 4-6 children, including those taking the 11+ exams. Your child must be in Years 4-6 in September 2021 (or the equivalent if outside the UK). The aim of the course is to build and feed your child’s love of creative writing through writing for different purposes. It seeks to inspire and encourage a love of writing and will be fun-filled but with hard work along the way! This course follows on from our original course, “Creative Writing: Core Skills and Story Writing”. It is recommended that your child attends our “Creative Writing: Core Skills and Story Writing” course first, although it is not essential.
Throughout this course, the children learn to write for different purposes. Alongside the course, the children will read “The Boy at the Back of the Class,” by Onjali Q Rauf, which needs to be purchased by the client directly. Each week, the children will practice a different style of writing. This includes:
- Recount writing
- Discursive writing
- Autobiographical writing
- Writing the next chapter
- Formal persuasive letter writing
- Descriptive writing
- Newspaper report writing
- Ending the story
- Book analysis
- Writing a story (two lessons will be devoted to writing a story and re-capping skills learned in the “Creative Writing: Core Skills and Story Writing” course)
Within each lesson, the children will learn how to structure these pieces of writing; new vocabulary; sentence structures; specific features of each style and more!
- Each session is for 1.5 hours.
- There will be a maximum of 6 children per class.
- The course is led by a highly experienced teacher.
- It takes place online.

“My daughter attended the 12 week Creative Writing course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Her writing came on tremendously and I love that she saw it as a fun activity to go to rather than what is basically English tuition in small groups. The creative writing text book which goes with the course is great and between that and the course her writing is now a pleasure to read. She loved her course tutor as well and looked forward to going each week. I would highly recommend this course to all children between age 9 and 11 and I will definitely consider sending my son when he is the right age for the course.” (parent)
