Yr 11’s A Novel Idea for the Weekend

Don’t forget your given mission for this weekend is to complete the novel Mr Pip.

You will be given a section on which you are to deliver a tutorial, so it will be handy to know the whole text 🙂

Happy reading, see you next week.


Yr 10’s Summaries

For a strong example of what I will be expecting, ask Matt (with chocolate ready to offer him) if you may look at the summary he showed me.  It’s very good and meets the requirements 🙂 Go Matt!


Alsoooo….I will soon edit the deadlines for Parts 1,2 & 3.

You guys are stars, I’m looking forward to seeing the fruit of all your hard work.

See you next Tuesday.
