Tell Me a Story Free 11+ Creative Writing Workshop

Is your child in Year Four or Five and working towards the 11+ examination? Would he/she benefit from a free 50 minute interactive class on narrative story writing? Then make sure he/she is signed up for Tell Me a Story – an exciting new session from Bright Sky Tutoring. 

Who is this suitable for? 

This session is suitable for children taking both the CEM and GL 11+ test, as well as any Yr4 and 5 children who need further support with their writing skills. 

What will you cover? 

The session will look at how to plan and structure a story narrative. We will explore:

  • What makes a story compelling? 
  • Why is planning so important?
  • What are the five stages of narrative and how will they help me plan?
  • What other techniques can I use to make my stories compelling to the reader? 

What will my child produce? 

  • A story plan
  • A story opening
  • An action plan to help him/her continue

There will also be a workbook that you can continue to use with your child to support them with their story writing. 

Who is running the session?

The session will be run by a qualified DBS-checked English teacher who is experienced in preparing students for the creative writing component of the 11+ examination.
