Join us as we take this commonly given piece of advice to budding writers and discover how you can use your own everyday experiences and knowledge as a powerful springboard to creative writing.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 7
Students will learn:
How to develop observation skills and use them in writing.
Developing a simple system of note-taking and retrieving ideas.
How to use their own experiences and knowledge to enhance creative writing
How to be sensitive in what they write about and to keep personal details safe.
Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, along with Theatre Arts, I've almost 20 years of experience in teaching English in primary schools. Over those years I have worked regularly with groups of children specifically on English writing skills.
I have taught observational skills many times and using shared experiences in writing.
I have also received regular ongoing training and been part of the school team delivering online safety awareness and measures to children and also in the youth groups (7 - 19-year-olds) I lead.

Grades Offered
A notebook or paper and something to write with, or device to use for writing. 
A small whiteboard may be handy but by no means necessary.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be considering what emotions feel like and will be asked to think of something that made them feel nervous/ fearful/ excited/ happy, etc and write a few sentences on those feelings. Please be aware if your learner is likely to be upset by this activity.
Students will be reminded that using their own experience doesn’t grant them the right to disregard others’ rights to privacy. 
Students will also look at using their own experiences in a way that doesn’t give out personal information both on and offline (as some students may decide to share their writing online either now or in the near future).
No outside sources.
