Holiday Programme at The Writer's Place
Nov - Dec 2013
click to view
A 5-day programme sampler for children who want to experience just how we instill that knack for writing. Children will be mastering basic techniques through meaningful games and applying them in their compositions! 

It is no surprise that comprehension is a struggle for many. Learning how to make annotations is very useful as it compels a student to slow down and UNDERSTAND the passage better. This 3-day workshop will guide students to heighten their thinking process. We will assist to break down the wall of confusion.  They will learn the importance of forming CONNECTIONS between ideas in different paragraphs. IMPORTANTLY, children will know the difference between literal and inferential questions.  

The Writer's Place has simplified and made grammar FUSS-FREE. Children will be made aware of some common grammatical errors which they aren't even aware of! Elementary level is catered to young learners who are not able to identify and apply parts of a speech. Intermediate level is catered for students who have a good grasp of basic grammar and are looking to form COMPLEX and MATURE sentences. 

Learn the secrets of conquering your child's fear of speaking to different types of audiences. Public speaking commonly refers to addressing a large crowd. However, it can also mean COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY with classmates especially in group work or captivating your audience during a class presentation. 

Stretch your young one's imagination through MOVEMENT and ACTING. Packed with lots of LIGHTHEARTED ACTIVITIES to compliment learning objectives. Build your child's confidence now!
