The Year 3 Guided Writing Service is specially designed to encourage creativity and interest in writing. Our aim is to down any barriers that may be stopping them from wanting to write at such an early age. To some children, creativity comes easily verbally but they struggle to put their ideas into words. This is exactly what this service will help with. Although we don’t tell them precisely what to write, our prompts will get them started quicker. By the second or third month, we hope to transform a reluctant writer to one who relishes writing and has to be told to stop!
Each genre and subgenre comes with a comprehensive guidance which will tell your child everything they need to know about writing an assignment in that particular genre. Every week one assignment along with specific guidance on how to complete will be emailed to you. Upon receipt of the completed assignment, a personalised feedback and grading are provided.
