CREATIVE WRITING COURSE SUMMER 2016

pupils in class

We highly recommend that Year 4 and Year 5 students attend the creative writing course as emphasis on creative writing, structure, spelling, vocabulary, grammar and handwriting are the main components of the English exam. We review the exam paper whilst it is fresh in their minds.

Course Details

The Creative Writing Course develops students’ skills, confidence and competence in completing 11+ papers, with a strong focus on creative writing— the latest element to be added to the 11+ exam.

During each session, students will be introduced to the key skills required within creative writing and these skills will be developed as the course progresses. In addition, we provide template answers as away of demonstrating differentiated answers to help the children achieve full marks in the creative writing sections.

Each session will cover a new creative writing element such as:

  • Finding a voice
  • Using descriptive devices
  • The plot mountain
  • Short story writing
  • Poetry
  • Using dialogue
  • After each session, students will be given a homework task which will reinforce the skills that they have learnt.

In addition to the above elements, students will work through the creative writing, vocabulary and comprehension elements from that morning’s CSSE mock exam.

The course will also include a session focusing on other aspects of the 11+ exam paper, covering topics such as; maths, English, non-verbal reasoning and verbal reasoning concepts.

Students will be provided with:

  • Step by stop solution strategies
  • Practice questions
  • Interactive activities
  • Follow- up worksheets

Students are also encouraged to partake in the online Creative Writing Challenge which will enable them to practice further and receive additional feedback on their progress.
