Power English: Writing

Make every child a writer 

The creative writing approach to help your children grow as writers, write for pleasure and meet age related expectations. 

Power English: Writing is a new, dynamic KS2 writing approach, which is genre-focused and encourages children to develop writing using their own interests and ideas. 

Using an evidence-based process which can be applied to all writing, Power English places a strong emphasis on creativity alongside the technical aspects of writing.

"I am a primary school teacher with ten years’ experience. When I was young, I didn’t realise that the written word was for me to use or enjoy. I was never told I was a writer.

"I want the children in my class to have a different experience."



Phil Ferguson

"I have worked in both the maintained and the independent sectors as SENCO and Deputy Head."

"I had a drive to write from a very early age. It’s my ambition for every child to gain as much pleasure and empowerment from writing as I did."
