Shakespeare Study for GCSE

The Year 9’s have been studying their GCSE Shakespeare play, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.  They chose a scene where the fairies were being introduced and explaining where they live; then did a beautiful display to recreate the scene.  I am very proud of the work that they displayed on the board as the ideas were all their own.photo 2

 

Trip to Sherlock Holmes Museum

The Year 8’s have been study Conan Doyle’s writing of Sherlock Holmes.  We have read and studied numerous stories with the main focus being on ‘The Red-Headed League’.  On Tuesday 10th December 2013 we embarked on a train to London to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum in Regent’s Park.  The setting for the museum is an old Victorian House over 4 floors including the attic.  Each room had a different theme with the top floor focusing on specific stories including ‘The Red-Headed League’.  After looking around the museum we went down into the gift shop and then had lunch in Regents Park.  It was a great day enjoyed by all.
