Morgan has been going to Little Star Writing Workshops every Wednesday since last September and she also did a three hour writing workshop retreat in the holidays. She loves it! And it clearly impacts on her reading and writing. LSW is a great club!
— Rebecca, Parent to Morgan and Nancy, Orleans Primary School
LSW’s fresh and inspiring ideas motivated even the most resistant writers.
— Mrs Fox, Literacy Coordinator, Highgate Private School, Cyprus
I was keen for Will to join LSW, as he didn’t always have the opportunity to write creatively in school. Mel is so fun and full of enthusiasm that it rubs off on the kids and she inspires them to really go for it…
It is the perfect club.
— Laura, Parent to Will, Trafalgar Junior School
I cannot speak highly enough of LSW. My daughter has been attending each year since it started at her school and eagerly looks forward to each session. LSW gives her an outlet for her imagination and has been a key driver in developing her literacy abilities far beyond those expected for her age. With word games, story writing and guest visits from children’s authors LSW manages to encourage, inspire and be fun!
— Quentin, Parent to Serena, Nelson Primary School
I was so surprised how much she enjoyed it as we struggle to get her to engage with schoolwork and homework. I was so pleased with her reaction, I asked her why she doesn’t like working at home and she said I’m not fun like LSW!
— Jatinder, Parent to Jaiya, Chatsworth Primary School
I have seen such an improvement in their confidence as writers. It is wonderful to find an activity where boys can receive such encouragement to grow creatively and to feel proud of their achievements.
— Vicky, Parent of 4, St Edmund's Primary School
I can proudly say that LSW is the best after school club and I would recommend it to everyone!
— Mrs Butkute, Parent to Kamile, Chatsworth Primary School
