The Poetry Society says: Pupils who read and write poems become skilled in using language carefully…..The language skills they gain will benefit them in all areas of the curriculum and beyond.

Our 11-plus Creative Writing Workshops

These workshops are for children in YEAR 6 who are about to take their 11-plus exams in 2020/2021. Please do not book if you are in year 5, there will be other workshops for your children throughout the year. If your child is taking their 10-plus you may apply for a place. Please email helena@storyroom.co.uk. 

The workshops focus on how to gain top marks in an 11-plus creative writing exam, teaching children how to structure their writing and make it stand out from the crowd.  Handouts are given out to each pupil for each of the workshops with guidance on how to make their writing shine.  Each child will email their writing completed in the session to our experienced tutors, which will be marked and returned.
