Class 11 have been working incredibly hard ahead of their various GCSE exams that will take place after the Easter break. In literacy lessons the pupils have been working independently on different exercises that suit their own targets and ambitions. Some pupils have been learning all about the life of William Shakespeare, and then writing a short biography of the playwright using Communication in Print.
Another group has been finding out what is meant when we talk about synonyms within literature. Using the school dictionaries, we compiled a list of synonyms for some of the more common words that we use during our written work. Poetry has also been important as we prepare for our GCSE’s. In the podcast below you can hear one of our Class 11 pupils describe in details about some of the recent literacy work, as well as reading out one of her favourite poems.
