My First Story Ages 6 to 7

We break down each stage of writing a story for our youngest writers. They will create a character, think about what the character wants and what the obstacles are in the character’s path. We show them how to sequence a plot with a beginning, middle and ending and encourage them to describe where the story takes place, how the character feels, as well as consider what has changed by the end of their stories.

11+ Exam Preparing Comprehension

Coming at the end of the summer holiday, this course is aimed as a ‘refresher’ in revising for the 11+ Exams by using past papers. We will show the group how to ‘read between the lines’ in the given extract and how to differentiate between the questions asked and how to answer as fully as possible and earn the optimum number of marks.

11+ Exam Preparation Creative writing

Using the questions on the past papers of the Comprehension course, we will show the group how to plan and execute a story or written composition in their 11+ exams. Practice in writing under time constraints, trying out a variety of questions, and the encouragement of our tutor,  will give our students confidence when they take school entrance exams.
