Your child could become a published author… imagine that.
Flowing Tales is an extra-curricular creative writing club that provides personalised guidance to stretch and challenge children in written English. Your child will be having so much fun, they won’t even realise that they are learning; and they will become a published author at the end of the 10 week club!
We operate the club in school after lessons have ended so there are no difficulties in fitting Flowing Tales into busy family schedules, with the added benefit that your child will be learning and collaborating in a familiar, safe environment with their friends. Flowing Tales is highly effective academic tool – on average children make 4 months ‘value added progress’ beyond what might be expected from classroom progression alone.
Originally designed to combat skills regression in the holiday it can form a valuable part of 11+, senior school, SATS and common entrance preparation in literacy as it provides highly personalised feedback for every child that participates.
Just like a good tutor, we assess your child’s ability using the National Curriculum framework and from this we set rigorous, but achievable targets. We closely monitor progress and success and create a report for each child, detailing their achievements on the camp with suggestions on areas for improvement. This is printed on the back of their certificate.
Flowing Tales is an immersive environment where children actively participate in the development of characters, plot lines and locations in shared stories. In an after school club, the children normally spend an hour at school and then they have two additional days online access to their camp if they wish to continue with their activities.
We work extremely hard to ensure that each camp is tremendous fun and our teaching staff provide regular easy-to-follow personalised feedback. Your child will be encouraged to develop their writing skills as well as firing their imaginations in an easy to use and engaging online learning environment.
Flowing Tales is not only incredible fun, but is also a stimulating and productive way for children to spend some of their holiday time.
But don’t just take our word for it…
“Flowing Tales unleashed the creative writer in our son. He was gripped by the concept right from the start and could not wait to begin. The format challenged him to change direction with his established story. Having to adapt a story to new ideas is something he hasn’t really had to face before. By succeeding, he felt a great deal of pride and achievement. As a concept it certainly provided the stimulation for him to write creatively.”
Vivanne, Mother of Year 4 child
Our teaching staff are warm and enthusiastic and will provide easy to follow feedback. Your child will be encouraged to develop their writing skills as well as firing their imaginations in an easy to use and engaging online learning environment.
Your child will share their online camp with children of a similar age, usually from their school. All our staff are DBS checked (enhanced CRB). If you are are interested in making Flowing Tales available to your children at their school please contact us.
