Creative Writing Courses For Children

For students who want to CREATE INCREDIBLE STORIES

Dates: Monday 2nd- Friday 13th of April 2018

Hours: 10am-3pm

Location: Ealing, London (W5)

Our creative writing course is the brainchild of our founder and best-selling education author, Victoria Olubi.

The course is ideal for primary-aged students (aged 9-11) who want to improve their writing skills and build their vocabulary.

The course covers both creative and discursive writing - skills that are often assessed during the 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams.

Furthermore, the course enables students to learn how to write in a way that will not only impress teachers and examiners, but will provide them with lifelong writing skills.

We always strive to ensure that our courses are fun, engaging and interactive which means that children don't feel bored or lose interest. In fact, the vast majority want to come back each day because they're enjoying it so much.

The course covers:

✔ Spelling, punctuation and grammar mastery

✔ Vocabulary development

✔ How to write superb creative writing stories

✔ How to write persuasively and discursively

✔ Understanding and mastering transactional writing 

✔ Writing in timed conditions and how to plan stories and compositions
