This creative writing course is designed for children in Year 4 and Year 5 and is perfect for both budding authors and reluctant writers alike!  Through lively interactive online sessions using a variety of engaging games and activities, your child will learn how to write different types of texts with confidence.

Your child will learn how to:

  • create compelling characters
  • write sensational settings
  • develop story structure
  • use figurative language
  • structure sentences
  • learn writers' tips and techniques
  • and much more!

In addition, we will study other creative writing texts such as persuasive writing, article writing, and poetry.

Parents will receive regular feedback on their child's progress during the term and a written report at the end of the course.

By the end of the term, your child will be able to plan and write a short story, as well as tackle the other types of texts, with greater skill and confidence.

Homework is set weekly and is marked in accordance with the criteria set for creative writing as demanded by 11+ entrance exams to leading independent and grammar schools.

Lessons are taught by Coriden Francis MA (Oxon).

All lessons take place on Zoom.

Class size is a maximum of six children.

Each session lasts 90 minutes.

Course Features

Small classes

I teach small friendly classes of no more than six children. I can give each child individual attention where required. There is also a real sense of camaraderie as everyone is in the same boat, working towards the same goal. The children make firm friendships too!



Weekly homework forms an essential part of the course. It will usually take about an hour to complete each week. Children email me their completed assignments and I mark them before the next lesson.

Online Classroom

I teach all lessons online in a secure room in Zoom. Online tuition is a superb way of learning. It offers more flexibility for parents and is less stressful for the pupil. It is a super way of teaching English as I can share and send materials straightaway.


The cost of group tuition is less than half that of one-to-one tuition with me. It’s an excellent investment in your child’s future.
