What is the Masterclass about?

The Story Writing Masterclass is about equipping your child to become confident in writing well-structured stories. Story writing for most children is tough with insufficient time spent in schools being shown how to do it. Somehow, schools expect children to be told once and just know how to plan with a beginning, middle and an end.

The Story Writing Masterclass will help your child to gain confidence in producing story after story which will make you and them proud. Whether your child is a beginner or an experienced story writer, practice is the key to becoming fluent at presenting interesting and well organised stories.

By attending, your child will benefit by learning how to:

  • Really improve story writing skills through planning and writing a first and second draft
  • Create interesting stories for the reader by using: connectives, a variety of sentence starters, varying sentence lengths, similes, metaphors and colourful vocabulary
  • Become skilled at self-correcting, editing and checking spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Produce interesting stories under timed exam conditions and organise creative ideas
  • Construct quality stories from primary through to secondary school

On top of all the above, your child will take away an easy to read FREE story writing guide which they can refer to again and again as well as a model story which can be applied to their own writing.

Children who will benefit from attending:

  • Primary Years 3 to 6
  • Secondary Years 7 to 11
  • Preparing for the 11+ state grammar or private school 11+ & 13+ exams
  • Year 11s taking GCSE English, RE, Geography, History, etc – subjects where exam essay writing is compulsory
  • Year 6 expected to produce long and short stories as part of the SATs writing assessments

Attendance is strongly recommended as this is an intensive Masterclass with the emphasis solely on story writing as opposed to grammar and comprehension which is covered in your child’s regular English tutoring sessions.

Booking early is recommended as space is limited and offered on a first-come-first served basis.
Call 020 8440 8586 to pay for your child’s place which is required before the course.
Fee: £30.
