Hello All,
I am preparing my DS for the independent school exams. However it seems tricky when it comes to creative writing. I would really appreciate if anyone has a story bank that you wouldn't mind sharing any tips or structure that would be useful to write a proper story

many thanks in advance

There are lots of info in this forum, you will probably need to look at Hertfordshire Or surrey Regions.

Let me know if you can't find and I will have a look at it later

Not sure how helpful this is but I have just come across a website this morning called 'The Literacy Shed'. This looks like a great tool for developing creative writing.

Have a look at the below link, the creative writing for independent schools are not very different from Grammar

viewtopic.php?f=30&t=46477&p=565024&hilit=merchant+taylor+answer#p565024

I've seen more fictional writing, describing the scenes, feelings etc. There's been few non fictional writing too

The other thing you may want to try is extended writing, the child will be given a scenario and will be expected to continue with the story

Hope this helps

Our experience of applying to independents this year has been similar to the last post. Mostly continue the story or a descriptive piece. Similar to the grammar schools that include creative writing. I would aim for lots of practise building up the constituent parts of a story. The Key Stage 2 books on aiming for SATS level 6 writing were very useful to us (think one of the ones we had was published by Collins).
