English Trips to Spanish City

Inspired by the journey of Phileas Fogg from “Around the World in Eighty Days”, we travelled to Whitley Bay to explore the nearby coastal town. After eating some delicious ice creams at Di Meo’s, we had a peek inside the newly refurbished Spanish City. As well as applying topic words to a real life situation, the trip provided a stimulus for our travel log writing project. Here are a few pictures we took a long the way….

English Creative Writing Project

As part of our English ‘Creative Writing’ curriculum some students in Key Stage 4 have been creating their own ‘Crazy Creatures’ and writing stories based around them.  Pupils have drawn and labelled their characters, written a description of them and have begun to plan their stories using a story mountain.  As part of the writing we have been practicing our redrafting skills, using self and peer assessment to correct our work and make it even better, adding punctuation and adjectives to make our writing really interesting! The creatures are beginning to sound amazing!
