Refine Writing Skills
We impart your child with the skills of writing by conducting class activities that promote reflective thinking and expressive writing, such that your child develops the confidence to write frequently. We introduce important aspects of writing, like idea generation, outline setting and paragraph development. Furthermore, we teach your child to embellish the composition with interesting features, like usage of quotations and caption writing to accompany graphics illustrations.

What we do during the Creative Writing Workshops
In this section, you can find out more about some of the interesting activities that will be conducted during our Creative Writing Workshops for Kids that are effective in improving your child’s thinking and writing abilities for creative expression. These activities include Brainstorming for Idea Generation, Caption Writing for Descriptive Illustration and Usage of Literary Devices for Expressive Writing. In a step-by-step learning process, we guide your child through the study and application of each skill, such that he/she can utilise it confidently and effectively even after the Workshops.
Brainstorming for Idea Generation
We teach your child to think about any interesting topics that are relatable to his/her own personal experiences. By doing so, your child will develop the ability to form and expand ideas that can be used for Creative Writing and Primary School Composition. We provide a list of possible topics that will support your child’s exploration of ideas and demonstrate how these ideas can be used to expand the discussion before writing.
Caption Writing for Descriptive Illustration
We guide your child in the understanding of ‘captions’, which are used to accompany the featured images in various contexts, such as newspapers, magazines and even online sites. We introduce to your child the features of a caption. To support this process, we encourage your child to take photos and select an image of interest, such that he/she can generate ideas on how to describe the image. Caption writing is an interesting way to showcase your child’s descriptive writing before reading the main body content.
Use of Literary Devices for Creative Expression
We also introduce the use of literary devices that will aid your child in creating a captivating and meaningful article. The Workshops will cover different features, like metaphors and similes, which are illustrated with example sentences. We teach your child how to form paragraphs with these expressive writing skills through short practices in class. Furthermore, our lessons also include the use of quotes to emphasize on important parts of his/her writing, similar to how quotes are used in news reports, to demonstrate real world application.
