As temperatures are dropping, curling up with a good book seems to be the right thing to do. To further encourage reading, the Collège reading challenge has just been launched.
The 6emes have been busy this term: writing a character analysis, an autobiography from a character’s point of view and improving their SPaG! What a great start to college!

Our 6eme class did so well identifying who Person X was from his luggage, that English Heritage sent them a letter of congratulations. Here is an example of their work and the letter we received.

This year we kicked off in two 6eme by celebrating Roald Dahl Day.

Both classes have been reading Dahl’s fantastic biography, Boy, and producing our own biographies and autobiographies, which we hope to show you soon!
