Year 11 were treated to a ‘smorgasbord’ of revision activities to choose from in English today. Some students were very brave and tackled reading some A level academic essays on Great Expectations; they found the ideas in them fascinating. Others brainstormed the context of the novel using picture prompts, a few worked up notes on themes in revision flip notes, some worked on close textual analysis and a couple of students had another go at writing an essay. It was a busy and focused lesson with Year 11 working really hard. Well done!
Last night during Outdoor Ed Club it was great to see the Ten Tors pupils planning their route for their next training walk 👏
