Year 11 English

January 30th, 2020 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

Year 11 were treated to a β€˜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!
