Year 7 students have been busily reading through this term's set novel 'A Monster Calls'. Their study of this novel, which included close textual analysis of key scenes within the novel, has allowed them to consider how language allows the reader to vividly imagine scenes in their mind.
Year 8 students were transported back in time to Nazi Germany through their study of the novel 'Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'. They were given the opportunity to consider the context of WWII through the point of view of the young Bruno, especially through his growing yet ultimately tragic friendship with Shmuel.
Year 9 students focused on the characterisation of teenagers within their set novel 'Tomorrow, When the War Began'. The novel provided the opportunity to be immersed in the distinct personalities of each main character and to consider how these personalities transformed throughout the novel.
