Well the first week back has flown by. The focus of learning this term for most groups is non-fiction texts and writing.
Pupils in Nevis have been looking at non-fiction writing in preparation for the Component 2 of the GCSE paper in June with Scafell taking a slightly different approach by preparation for their Functional Skills in writing assessments. Either group may be asked to write an article, speech or letter so need to be prepared for all types of writing.
Donard, Skiddaw and Baystones have visited the school library and completed their first challenge there, they have been introduced to the Dewey system. They are now working towards an extended writing piece about a topic of their own choice, using non-fiction books to support their knowledge.
Preparations are in place for our celebrations of World Book Day...I wonder what stories and books will be read this week?
