This program does a deep dive into Paper 1 (Writing) of the school and national examinations, covering continuous writing and situational writing. It is centered on written compositions each week, and will be supplemented by composition workshops.

Components covered:

  • Continuous writing –  Dive-deep into techniques for different text types, e.g. plot planning, scene setting, characterisation, development of gripping climaxes and compelling conclusions for the narrative; and brainstorming and organisation for the expository. Students will also learn about advanced sentence structures and punctuation to enrich their writing.
  • Situational writing – Exposure to different genres and focus on tone and register.

For all writing exercises, students will be given suggested responses showcasing various model essays and their analysis.

Students will also be introduced to some of the best works from celebrated authors, both local and international, to acquaint them with excellent writing techniques and nurture in them a love for reading and writing.
