Pri 1 Preparatory Course

In this 4-day writing camp, students will be happy and contented with their enriched ability to express themselves creatively. They will take pride in their newfound proficiency in reading comprehension, feeling confident in their capacity to analyse and interpret texts.

Young students will relish the knowledge they gain from studying the techniques of their favourite books, which they can apply to their own writing, especially the character emulation and plot.

Most importantly, they will develop a longer lasting love for reading and writing, a source of joy that extends beyond the camp, nurturing their curiosity and self-expression.

“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.”
