Overview
Storyland is our introductory creative writing workshop, supporting our youngest students to build up the foundation of storytelling skills and habits they need to be strong writers. Students read and engage with a variety of carefully selected stories over the course of the term. Through reading, writing, and arts and crafts, students explore stories, expand their imaginations, develop listening and reading skills, and gain self-confidence in making up their own stories! At the ECP centre, students are separated into two levels -- Storyland Foundation and Storyland Advanced -- to better cater for the different stages of the early writer.
