The Education Hotel is excited to announce our 11+ Comprehension and Creative Writing Course. 

Our 11+ specialist tutors will be running a 5 day long Comprehension and Creative Writing course during the holiday period. These fun group lessons will focus on the tips and tricks of how to write a well structured story as well as how to crack the longer comprehension tasks set by many second stage exams and independent schools. Students will focus on 2 mark, 3 mark and longer questions in comprehension, and on story writing in creative writing

This course is ideal for students in Year 5 and 6 who are preparing for independent exams or second stage exams, where they will be required to offer more in depth answers than multiple choice answers.

Our course also helps children prepare for creative writing examiners who may have different priorities. Some examiners may be interested in the content of the work, rather than strong spelling or punctuation. Others focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling. It is important to be prepared in all areas, but we can be sure that all examiners will be looking for several important things: a story with a clear “beginning, middle and end”, great vocabulary and descriptions. These tend to be areas that children struggle with the most.
