Service Description

Phase 1: It is a 1-to-3 course. The main focus of the course is learning how to write fluently and effectively in English with varied sentence structure, ambitious vocabulary and a variety of figurative language. The course includes areas designed to build a student’s confidence, ways to improve their writing in terms of sentence structure, vocabulary and figurative language, and lots of hints and tips for how to boost their mark in an exam situation. We also factor in past papers from a variety of well-known independent schools to prepare the students for the range of exams that they may take. PHASE ONE – Description and Accuracy 1. Drawing with words (1) – descriptions and settings HOMEWORK: Please add to the powerful paragraph you have already written in the lesson by adding one more paragraph to complete your spooky setting. 2. Drawing with words (2) – mood and tone HOMEWORK: Pick three adjectives that you used today and look up five of your favourite synonyms for these words. 3. Enriching descriptions (1) – alliteration and onomatopoeia HOMEWORK: Writing a paragraph about a farmyard involving as much alliteration and onomatopoeia as possible. 4.

Writing accurately (1) – sentences and paragraphs HOMEWORK: This is an opportunity to consolidate all the techniques we have discussed so far, in the form of a larger piece of writing, since this is just over the half-way point in the course 7. Drawing with words (3) – characters HOMEWORK: Don’t forget to use similes, metaphors and alliteration! You may use a thesaurus to help you if you would like. 8.

Writing accurately (2) – learning to proofread your own creative writing HOMEWORK: Correct their own homework from the previous week to see if they can spot any run-on sentences. 10.
