CREATIVE CLUB (for READERS, WRITERS & DEBATORS)
The school creative club endorses a very interactive practical approach while developing the advanced reading, creative writing and debating skills in children.
The reading and writing segment traverses through many interesting as well as challenging activities as brainstorming stories as a group to generate ideas, using fairytales, drama, interesting topics, issues, objects or suggested themes as an aid to freeing and developing the imagination. Having worked as part a group, each child is then given an opportunity to write on their own. We also like children to have an opportunity to read their writing aloud to a partner - as a first step in editing. Our principal goal is to help develop children’s creativity, reading prowess, creative writing ability, storytelling ability and confidence in their own imagination, rather than formal literacy skills, though these will undoubtedly be enhanced. Teachers also encourage students to collaborate throughout the writing process by brainstorming ideas about a topic, responding to drafts in a writing group, or helping peers edit or revise their work. Collaboration also can take the form of collaborative writing, whereby students jointly develop a single text.
Debating is yet another prominent component of our creative club. As well as being a powerful classroom tool, debating is a fun and educational extra-curricular activity. A debating society is the perfect way to focus interest in debating and can play a leading part in the school’s culture. Debating society is a great way to focus interest in debating in a school and is beneficial for a number of reasons. Debating society promotes the communication and advocacy skills, encourages the critical and creative thinking abilities and benefits the wider school culture by helping children take on leadership roles at an early age.
