Creative Writing Workshops
Years 4, 5 & Year 6 Creative Writing
1 day workshops at our Examberry Ealing Centre
Maximum of 10 students per class
10am – 4pm
The aim of the workshop is to enhance writing skills in preparation for the 11+ and the challenging local independent school exams.
We will write using frameworks so that the children have a clear idea of expectations of how to write at the top level at this age.
Children will also be given creative writing resources to take home, plus a suggested list of story ideas so that they can then continue to write at this level after the course.
Parents will receive assessments of the child’s writing after the course.
During the course of the day we will be looking at:
- How we structure and present our work
- Different characters and settings – how we describe them when we write
- Using exciting openers to enhance our writing and draw the reader in
- Using conjunctions to extend our sentences and make them more sophisticated
- Using all punctuation and particularly focusing on the use of colons and semi colons
- Using figurative language to bring our story to life including: simile, metaphor, alliteration, hyperbole, onomatopoeia and personification
- Using colour to make our descriptions more vivid
- Using tension to entertain the reader – remember what you don’t see can be far scarier than what you do see
- Planning and checking writing
