Four creative writing workshops for children will be held during the February half-term holidays in Bradford Libraries.

The free Explore Learning workshops have been designed to engage children to be fearless learners with a fun and inspiring hour-long creative writing workshop in the library environment.

The workshops will be held on Wednesday, 20 February and Thursday, 21 February.

On Wednesday, 20 February the workshops will be at:

  • City Library, 12pm to 1pm with a workshop called “Put A Spring In Your Step” designed to focus on predicting what happens next.
  • Manningham Library from 2pm to 3pm called “Fun With Phonics” exploring the world of rhyming words.

On Thursday, 21 February the workshops will be at:

  • ¬†Heaton Hub Community Library at 12pm to 1pm with “Journey To The King’s Throne.” ¬†Children travel back to medieval times and joust their way through grammar tournaments.
  • Cafe West Allerton Library at 2pm to 3pm will host “Winter Wonderland.” Children will journey through the woodland in winter time, meeting some very opinionated animals in the form of a hedgehog and a reindeer. Can they stop any arguments forming by helping them understand the difference between facts and someone’s opinion?

They have been offering quality tuition and workshops since 2001, inspiring over 200 000 children to excel academically.
