Pri 1 to 4 Creative Writing Camp with Grading

Is your child beginning to find their school’s creative writing classes a tad unexciting after a while? It’s not uncommon, but there’s a remarkable solution at hand. Why not introduce them to something more thought-provoking and inspiring, an experience that will ignite their young writer’s imagination and curiosity? We invite you to explore our engaging and stimulating creative writing camp, tailored specifically for children from Primary 1 to 4. This unique opportunity is designed for those young minds eager to learn how to craft compositions that not only impress but truly captivate their teachers and peers alike.

Through a series of reading and writing activities, your child will be inspired to explore beyond the ordinary, to dive into imaginative worlds, and to express their thoughts with better techniques.

By the end of this creative writing camp, your child will not only have a newfound enthusiasm for writing but also the tools to create much better compositions. So, why not let your child’s creative spirit soar and embark on this enriching journey of imaginative writing with us?

It has helped many students gain confidence and real results which will boost their school performance. These unique lessons will empower primary school students to master the techniques that make their narratives engaging, well-structured, and memorable, enabling them to craft captivating and effective stories.”

What your child will learn:

Many times, younger students in Primary 1 to 4 struggle with writing. They tune out whenever they are asked to write as they find it tedious. The best way to motivate them is teach them to see a connection between what they read and what they write. They handle reading of wordy texts daily in school and in tuition classes. Tapping into reading passages to elicit ideas for writing is a convenient way to improve their plots and vocabulary when it comes to writing. Most students tend to see reading and writing as two separate things. We’ll help your child learn how to link what they read in stories and use those ideas for their own writing. Here’s what your child will discover during our study camp:

  1. Think Out of the Box for Plot Ideas

    Students are encouraged to break free from conventional ideas and explore innovative, imaginative plots. The book excerpts will help them learn new plot ideas. Our teachers will use a single, easy-to-remember technique to teach them how to create a foolproof plot.

  2. Being Comprehensive in the Story Resolution

    The camp emphasises the importance of delivering satisfying story endings. Students learn to wrap up their stories effectively, tying up loose ends fully. We will be teaching 2 to 3 types of endings depending on their proficiency levels in writing.

  3. Expand Story to Focus on Emotions and Thoughts of Characters

    Students delve into character development. We will be diving into a unique character arc, so your child can develop characters who undergo growth or change throughout the story. This adds depth to their storytelling, making their characters more relatable and their narratives more emotionally resonant.

  4. Write with a Variety of Writing Techniques

    Did you know? We need to always teach students to use descriptive language and sensory details to show emotions, settings, and character reactions rather than telling the reader. Our creative writing camp introduces students to an array of writing techniques such as adjectives, dialogue, and figurative language. We will help your child to understand the importance of introducing conflicts and challenges in their stories. The ability to write effective conflicts lies in several fundamental secrets – we will reveal and reinforce these tips during our writing camp.

  5. Grading, with Feedback

    Recognising the limited feedback typically provided in school and the overall lack of practice in most primary schools, we are committed to offering detailed feedback on the students’ work. Towards the end of the course, we will furnish one comprehensive feedback form, along with grading their work.

Enhance Your Child’s Writing Skills through Literary Inspiration!

Primary 1 to 4 Creative Writing Camp, Inspired by Real Authors.

In this 4-day camp, students will be writing stories spun off from chapters of storybooks. While the innate values and characters are retained, students get to write stories that they will newly create with an inspired setting and set of characters from popular books. This enhances their story development process, while emulating good authors and exciting passive readers to develop thought-provoking and engaging stories.

“My favourite story is Father Christmas. We get to act out a skit before we started analysing the characters. During that lesson, I learnt to write something meaningful. Best of all, I could get a lollipop as a reward. This is my third holiday course at Writers Studio.”

“I like to write but I needed to put on a bigger thinking cap. I learnt to make some bends in my story plot. I learnt new ways to write about the characters and what they do in their stories. I could pick up new vocabulary because at every paragraph, we are taught new phrases.”

“I enjoy the lessons taught during the Creative Writing Camp. There were so many interesting activities. I remember that we had to wear a face mask with a big nose and act out a character. It makes me think about what the character will say and do in my story. I learn to create new characters in my stories.”
