Class Experience

This session flows on naturally from an artwork starter, through to reading, to creative writing and then (an optional) presentation where work is read out. Throughout, each student's power of deduction and logical reasoning will be drawn upon. Skills utilized include...
Information Gathering
Critical Thinking
Creative Writing
Problem Solving
Confidence Building
Presentation (Reading) of work (optional)
(Chris will also be available to answer questions on the craft of writing at the end of the session.)
Activities for this session are taken from a professionally published 60 page PDF School Handbook based on the novel which is provided to learners as a FREE download. The document has 64 individual tasks and although no homework is set directly, students 'may' choose to complete other tasks independently after the session. 
Should students wish to read the novel, Inky Stevens, the Case of the Caretaker's Keys by Chris Martin is available now from Amazon/Waterstones book stockists, published by Hogs Back Books. (Or see
 2 files available upon enrollment
For this session learners will need... **A pen and pencil **Printer copies of Pages '11' and '15' from the PDF document. (Please note that these will emerge as 'Page 8-Introducing Inky' and 'Page 12-Who is the Prime Suspect?' as the page numbers don't quite tally. No need to print off the full PDF, it's very long!). **Printed copies of 'Doc 1 The Suspects' (The text from the novel itself, plus space to write a response.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment is provided verbally during the session.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
All material provided is appropriate for the age range stipulated.
