Write for fun!Join me for a creative writing club, where I will use short, animated films to inspire learners to write. Learners will gain confidence in this open-ended class where children have the freedom to choose their writing outcomes.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Learning objectives encompass:
- fostering enhanced confidence in writing skills, 
- adeptness in crafting narratives inspired by film, 
- building enduring writing stamina, 
- honing the skill of effective self-editing, 
- cultivating the assurance to share and showcase one's creative work.
 For over 15 years now, I have been working as a teacher in mainstream British primary schools (with children aged 4-11). In my role, I have worked with a range of children, from those with additional needs to children whom have been classified as gifted and talented.

For 10 years, I have been the head of English at two different schools, where I have had the responsibility for driving progress and achievement. My focus as a teacher and a leader has always been to help children reach academic excellence through exciting and innovative lessons.
Homework Offered
Each week, children are encouraged to complete or refine the collaborative work initiated in class. They are warmly invited to submit their efforts to me after the session, opening the door to valuable feedback and constructive guidance.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Children will be given ongoing formative assessments throughout the lesson.
Grades Offered
- If children are able to type, the lessons work best using Google Docs, so that I can see what they are writing and edit it with them in live time. Please make sure that you have an account set up and logged on for the lesson.

- If children cannot or do not want to type we can easily use pen and paper, but please make sure that it is a dark pen that I will be able to see on camera.
