Who can attend?

Children in Year 6 who are preparing for the 11+ exams and children preparing for Pre-tests. 

What is covered?

Each day one Discursive and one Descriptive writing topic will be covered in detail to ensure children understand how to answer these questions in an exam paper. Time is of the essence here. Writing quickly, presenting an argument for and against the topic and backing up your answers with your own evidence and experience. Short descriptive pieces written within 20 minutes, content will tick the examiner's requirements.  Groups are limited to 6 children.
