Writer Buds

Saturday 3.45-4.45pm, £75  

A new group specifically for children aged 7+ years, designed to focus on a different aspect of writing each term, all based around a set theme.

Spring Term:
6th January – 24th March (10 weeks)
We’ll start off with a snowy theme, then move on to Spring, new life and growth, with the focus on a comic book style of writing, followed by scripts. The aim of this term will be to produce a set of stories, complete with images or illustrations (no artistic skills required), as well as our own mini play!

Summer term:
21st April – 7th July (10 weeks)
Starting the term with the theme of sports, we’ll move on to all things holiday as the weather (hopefully) gets warmer. Beginning with some journo-style writing (we’ll do some match reports and some ‘interviews’, for example), we’ll progress to short-form writing, poetry and maybe even some songs!
