Have you ever wondered how your child can improve his/her composition writing techniques effectively in the shortest time?

It is not easy for a child to “suddenly” become a proficient writer.

It is challenging to teach students creative writing because it is something very personal and every child writes differently. Thus, a personal touch is required when guiding a child on composition writing. We have also seen that the earlier (in lower primary) they learn the correct writing techniques, the better the retention of the techniques through their upper primary years.
Does your child face these problems when it comes to composition writing?

His teacher teaches him beautiful phrases but he never uses them in his composition. His composition is disorganized and full of grammatical and spelling errors.
Our students shared some of the problems they encountered:
“I hate to write compositions! I don’t want to write!”

“I don’t know what the meaning of the phrases.”

“I don’t know how to use the phrases.”

“I don’t know which part of the composition to add in the phrases.”

“I want to write better compositions, but I don’t know how to improve.”
So… I just write how I always write because that’s the easiest! (sounds familiar?)
Reading books on model compositions and writing more compositions might not necessarily translate to better composition grades. Why?

The reason is because, in composition writing, the hardest part is how a child transfers his knowledge (planning, good phrases) into reality.

So, why do our students show so much improvement in such a short period of time?

They go through a simple 4 step process to achieve an excellent compo!

Constant review and feedback from teachers and the ability and willingness to include suitable phrases into their compositions.
In our small classes, our teachers sit down with each student and go through their composition line by line to guide them on the following:

How to write better sentences (grammar, sentence variation and structure),

How exactly to use the phrases that have been taught in class,

What exactly to improve on, e.g. which part of the story to improve on, the gaps in the composition, etc.

How to improve their story flow, introduction, story climax and conclusions.

Some useful materials that are covered in our Super Writers classes:
40 commonly tested composition topics in primary schools (based on the new PSLE format)

We use this list a lot for composition writing practice to get our students to familiarise with the difficult topics and It was no surprise that most of our students’ SA1 composition questions came from this list that we gave them! Good for them!

Financial Times, 30 Sep 2016
Teacher Grace as quoted in The Financial Times, 30 Sep 2016 on the new PSLE grading scheme
“I have seen students who were so disappointed that they missed cut-off points by decimal points,” said Grace Tan, principal of the Learning Journey tuition centre. “At the tender age of 12, it is hard to for them to understand why they couldn’t get into the school of their choice, even after they have worked hard. This fine distinction causes unnecessary stress for these young children and their parents.”
