CREATIVE WRITING BOOTCAMP
Expand your child’s horizon as they learn more about the joy of creative writing and become confident in using bold, exciting vocabulary. This online programme is designed for primary school learners, who want to learn about Creative Writing techniques, tools, and topics like outlining, storytelling, character development, creating a compelling plot, and how to make your words more artful. Most parents don’t know how to help their children in this area. Just writing story after story won’t help much, children need real guidance(we literally mean a bit of handholding :)). This course covers the ground fully and helps children to develop the skills necessary to attain the highest marks.
This course is suitable for YR3 and YR4. Even YR5 beginners can join this but we also have 11plus exclusive bootcamp for YR5, contact admin for details.
