Fighting Words Primary
Creative Writing workshops for children of all abilities. Encouraging children to read, write, tell stories and be proud of their imaginations.
The class writes the first part of the story together then each child has the opportunity to write their own individual ending to the story, with the assistance and encouragement of our volunteer tutors. Each child leaves the session with a printed book of the story they have just created.
Fighting Words workshops encourage literacy, inspires creativity, build creative confidence and recognises the importance of each child’s voice. It’s also GREAT FUN!
