Creative Writing Club Details:
In the first 6-weeks of the club, the children focus on developing their vocabulary and writing skills, using the picture books “Odd Dog Out” by Rob Biddulph and “Billy and the Dragon” by Nadia Shireen to inspire their learning. Topics in this course include colour adjectives, appearance adjectives, feelings and senses, weather descriptions and how to include these skills to develop a story. Children do not need their own copies of these books as they are simply used to inspire learning.
In the second 6-weeks of the club, the children focus on developing their reading and writing skills by writing for different purposes, using Hotel Flamingo by Alex Milway to support their learning. Topics in this course include letter writing, persuasive writing, diary writing, information texts, comic strips and writing a newspaper article.
Parents would need to purchase a copy of Hotel Flamingo (the first book in the series) for this club.

“My daughter really enjoys the creative writing club and it helps her English a lot. She’s learned skills on how to write a story in detail as well as new vocabulary. The tutor is an excellent teacher, well prepared, structured and always find a way to motivate my daughter. I would highly recommend this course.” (parent)
“My daughter, who is Japanese, loves Creative Writing Club. The tutor always praises her positively and she looks forward to it every week. The club is amazing!” (parent)
“My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed the Creative Writing Course by Bright Light Education. She looks forward to the lesson each week and is engaged throughout. This half term the children have read Hotel Flamingo by Alex Milway and have used the text to explore how the author uses language to describe the hotel and introduce characters. The support sheets are well structured so that the children are guided in their writing and is divided into small manageable chunks. I especially liked how the children were introduced to different types of writing such as diary writing, a fact file and writing a newspaper article. Each week was different, educational and fun. The tutor is enthusiastic and encouraging, and my daughter feels confident to share her thoughts and ideas each lesson. Each child is encouraged to participate and you can see that they are all eager to take part. The children are encouraged to use interesting and challenging vocabulary and to write independently as much as possible. I would recommend this course to give your child confidence in their writing and reading comprehension.” (parent)
