Writing Course Term 1: Extending Writing Skills

To begin our Upper Writing course, we work on developing students’ writing skills and understanding of storytelling through exploration and practice of more advanced language techniques as well as an examination of different plot structures, character arcs and use of techniques such as symbolism and allegory.

The writing skills learned here are designed to add maturity and sophistication to students’ writing – crucial elements for high grades at GCSE level. These tutorials are a focus of direct teaching, discussion and writing. Students will receive live feedback on their writing in tutorials.

  • 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.
