Hello and welcome back to a new term! We hope you all had a restful summer (parents included) and are looking forward to the new term. This half term the English department is launching several new opportunities:
English Logo Design Competition:
Calling all designers! The English Department needs a logo to represent English on displays and publications. Submit your design to your English teacher by Friday 25th September. It should be in black and white on A5 paper. Prize available for the winner!
‘Student of the Half Term’:
This half term will see the first round of awards given for ‘Student of the Half Term’. One student will be selected per year group who deserves recognition for hard work, commitment, outstanding class contributions, quality of homework or classwork, or progress. Nominees will have their photograph displayed on the celebration wall, as well as recognition in assembly and prizes awarded. Could it be you?
‘Where will your book take you?’:
We are keen to see where your book takes you! Take a photograph of you reading your book in unusual places and hand it 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?
