For World Book Day our students have been taking the opening lines of classic works of literature and then writing their own beginnings.
Here is Elise Bolas in Year 9 tackling 1984 by George Orwell and Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.
Amazing stuff!!

Elise Bolas So proud of you❤️

World Book Day recommendation.


The River Whale Sita Brahmachari
Immy has always loved wild swimming; one day, she hopes to become a marine biologist. Tomorrow is the first step towards that goal – completing her entry level diving certificate.

But her plans for a good night’s sleep are ruined by a strange and vivid dream of a distressed whale in the river. At school she tries to shake it off, but discovers that her nightmare has leaked into reality.
Immy and her trusty friend Cosmo must head for the Thames on a mission to save the trapped river whale. Can Immy use her skills to release it from the rubbish-filled nets it’s caught in and guide it home?

Katherine Rundell – Skysteppers

High above the streets of Paris live the rooftoppers, a secret gang of children who eat, sleep and tumble amongst the chimney pots.

But for Matteo and Mercedes the adventure is only just beginning, as the pair find themselves on a wild hunt across Paris - tearing over the roofs in search of hidden treasure in a race against an enemy who would seek to destroy that which they love best.

Knowledge Connected Days

Over a thousand students in nine secondary schools completed two Knowledge Connected Days in which every Year 8 lesson was driven by the concept of either Pattern or Human Interaction.

The semantic field in a passage of prose, the periodic table of the elements, the Fibonacci series, the life events marked by different religious faiths, the stylistic features that betray the work of a famous artist – all of these are examples of how pattern infuses our knowledge. Fourteen Creative Education Trust teachers, nominated for their subject expertise and conceptual agility, wrote and collaboratively developed a suite of lessons for two hundred teachers across the Trust to deliver on the same day. Every lesson was driven by the concept of pattern – the list above, plus the patterns of movement in dance, patterns of technique in drama, patterns of language in French, German and Spanish and – of course – the patterns that make up music. The second Knowledge Connected day focused on Human Interaction, or in other words, the contingency that arises as soon as you get someone else involved in what you’re doing.

The Year 8 day of Pattern was filmed at The Hart School; Human Interaction at Thistley Hough Academy. Watch how teachers presented a range of its synonyms – from co-operation to empathy and trust, action-and-reaction and teamwork – explored by teachers in lively dialogue with students.
