What a Spectacular Start!

Wednesday, 6 January 2016

Our Year 7s were welcomed back on the first day of the new term with the launch of a new topic, 'Belonging'.  They looked at the importance of culture and nationality, and how we all share similar characteristics that contribute towards British identity today.  The Spectacular Start included a carousel of exciting activities, including the construction of Facebook profiles to identify characteristics, and a thoroughly enjoyable British tea party to share experiences of the Christmas break.  Following that, there was by an introduction to the set text, 'Refugee Boy' by Benjamin Zephaniah, that provided an insight into his beliefs on belonging in Britain today.
