Available for schools to help enrich their Creative Writing, Poetry or Literacy curriculum and to help establish a culture of creativity, thinking and experimentation.
Each child’s confidence as a writer is encouraged and empowered in every project by immersing them in the creative writing process – exploring, thinking, imagining, discussing and experimenting with words, ideas, organisation, and best ways to engage an audience. The ability to creatively think outside of the box and to work collaboratively - as well as individually - encouraging transferable skills for the young minds of the future.
Each writer will benefit from tips and tricks, handy toolkits and visual aids to make their writing better. Children will be inspired by current, engaging topics and the additional use of multi-media including film and helpful apps (if iPads are available).
Projects are thoughtfully hand crafted and tailor-made for each school based on their wishes and vision, working in close partnership with teachers and staff to maximise the impact of each project.

Shared Education Collaborative Story Making Programmes for KS1/2&3
In this unsure climate, making arrangements for Shared Education could be quite tricky. Our immersive programme has been designed to work virtually via an online platform between twinned classrooms as well as embracing a focus on literacy skills and creativity.
The concept behind the programme allows individuals, or groups, within a class to virtually collaborate with another individual or group from another school through a variety of options available for different settings, based on a choice of age related stories/themes.
Inspired by a story, children will be guided week-by-week within the realms of creative writing; character, setting design & description and story building with their own imaginative ideas.
A carefully designed workbook will coincide with creative, hands-on and engaging activities week-on-week, that embrace Ink Wing Academy's ethos of Explore. Believe (in yourself). Write. Each programme will have engaging writing tasks suited to the age and stage of the pupils.
Why choose this programme:
Engage imaginative young writers
Help to improve Literacy and a love for Story Making in your school
Collaborate creatively within the ethos of Shared Education
Run a successful programme without interruption if Home Learning needs to occur within the Autumn Term
