Workshops for children 儿童课程

I am a specialist in supporting children with creative writing in English. I use discussion, critical thinking, drama and art as a way to inspire children to write. My workshops are ideal for pupils who need extra support, further practise or a new challenge. Something for everyone!

Over several sessions, I use my expertise to guide the children through the creative writing process.

Workshops can be part of the school timetable or as an after school club, and they are designed to support the objectives of the English National Curriculum (2014) and the International Curriculum.

See the workshop outlines below:

The Island

Age: 7-11 years  (UK, KS2)
Content: Creative writing, critical thinking, drama, art 
Price: on request

When a mysterious man arrives on an island, the people who live there face a dilemma. What should they do with him? In this workshop, children consider how we should live in a diverse world and how the choices we make can shape our societies. Using drama, children learn about the people of the island and discover the mystery of the strange man before writing their own account of his arrival.
