*Book now for autumn 2022*
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 at the time of the course (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.
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. This novel offers a child’s perspective on the plight of refugees, and highlights the importance of kindness and friendship in a world that does not always make sense to them. 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.
- Fully interactive with homework set and in-depth marking.
- The course is led by a highly experienced teacher.
- It takes place online.
- £540 (equivalent to £30 per hour, plus marking of homework)
- Please email us directly if you would like to pay in two instalments.
- Once booked, places are non-refundable as stated in our Terms and Conditions.

“My son has improved his writing skills and started enjoying writing after the two courses we did with Bright Light Education, both the “Core skills and Story Writing Course” and “Writing for Different Purposes”. “Writing for Different Purposes” made it feel complete and took the student’s writing skills to the next level. The constant positive feedback and encouragement throughout the lessons boosted his confidence levels. The structure and the style of the course is remarkable and makes writing fun.” (Parent)
“My son is enjoying the classes a lot thank you. He said he feels he learns a lot from this class. He has another group creative writing class with another company and although the other one is very popular, he said he prefers Bright Light Education’s course!
