According to associate professor Susan Hill (cited in Simos, 2011) the ‘close connection’ between reading and writing needs to be explored more. This is because some children don’t always learn to read before they write (Simos, 2011). The importance of having good teachers ensures that children explore and engage their creativity when writing creatively. Through making creative writing experiences fun and engaging children are more like to be engaged and enjoy what is taught (Simos, 2011).
Having good teachers allows students to unleash their creatively through story writing. Many children struggle to write creatively according to Bradley, 2001. Through teachers encouraging students to become confident capable learners will inspire creativity and writing skills (Bradley, 2001). Thinking of interesting ways of creating stories including: games, re-writing or re-telling the end of a book as well as selecting inspirations which interest the children are essential to fuelling this creativity.
