Year 6 Creative Writing Club

Creative Writing Club consists of a small group of Year 6 pupils who meet up after school on a Tuesday to have fun with words. The club has been running for half a term in which the willing wordsmiths have designed dragons to inspire their creative writing. The children have used a technique called DADWAVERS! It is a mnemonic which stands for:

Description
Action
Dialogue
Where
Adverb
Verb
Estimation of time
Rhetorical Question
Simile or Metaphor
! Exclamation or onomatopoeia

Each of these are sentence starters and, when using the mnemonic, they force the writer to change the sentence opening. Writing in this way often alters the whole sentence structure. Here are Creative Writing Club's short DADWAVERS! about dragons:
