Writing Course Term 1: Becoming a Writer

Our budding authors begin by mastering the basics in our first term. Through writing short descriptions of everything from monsters and aliens to beautiful gardens and dilapidated buildings, students become confident in the fundamentals of creating imagery. We tackle grammatical terminology (as per the National Curriculum) and, crucially, put it into practice in our own writing.

This first term provides the building blocks for the brilliant writing to come!

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion of extracts and model writing, and writing practice with live feedback from the tutor
  • Writing requirements – Students need to write during the lessons using online worksheets. Students write at their own pace and receive guidance and encouragement along the way.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
