Will there be magic?

Yes!

Will there be writing?

Yes!

In fact, we are focusing on areas that children tend to find challenging, including:

1. Expressing emotions and thoughts of different characters in the written form

2. Writing about a process in an engaging manner

3. Describing events vividly and in sufficient detail in their writing

This is a fantastic opportunity for them to work on their writing skills and pick up new techniques. So, don’t hesitate! Come join us for a spell-binding and unforgettable time this holiday.

 

‘Magical Writing’ Itinerary

Day 1
Tommillusions will perform a magic show. Students will get to be both participants and audience members, and they will write about their experiences.

Day 2
Students will learn to perform a magic trick and present it to their audience. They will write down the steps of this magic trick and also the experience of performing to a live audience.

 

As the lesson will be conducted via Zoom, we are limiting the number of children to a maximum of 5 per session to ensure optimal learning. All learning materials, including those needed for your children to perform the magic tricks, will be delivered to your doorstep at your preferred address!

We will also be recording the session for you and your children to enjoy together after the class.
