Hello and welcome back after half term! We hope you all had a restful week off and are now getting ready for the run up to Christmas. Take a look at the low down for English this half term.

Functional Skills November Entries
Good luck to some of our year 12 students who will be sitting their Functional Skills exams this November. This is a great opportunity to gain a qualification in the use of the English language in everyday contexts such as writing a personal statement or letter.
‘Word of the Week’ challenge
Each week you will be given a new ‘Word of the Week’ in pastoral time, which is also displayed in every classroom. Get talking about it with your pastoral group- how many times can you use it that week?!
‘Where will your book take you?’:
Thanks to those who have already got started with this by handing in some great photos of you reading in original places. Keep an eye out over the next year and bring in your pictures!
Here is a reminder of the project.
We are keen to see where your book takes you! Take a photograph of you reading your book in unusual places and hand in to your English teacher. This is an ongoing opportunity so keep thinking as you go out at weekends and on holidays. Check the board as you come up to English to see where books have taken other students and your teachers! How far round the world will we get?
