The year 8 pupils worked hard during their first unit to inquire into and learn about the esteemed English poet and playwright, William Shakespeare, and his style of writing. For their summative assessment they had to use their acquired knowledge to create their own unique, imaginative and poetic sonnets and soliloquies, on the timeless theme of love. The students shared their love for various things including the seasons, sports, family, cars and food. To conclude the unit appropriately, they invited the school community to a recital, during which they proved to be risk-takers when presenting their work. The recital was followed by a tea party where they had a chance to chat with each other, their parents and teachers. We congratulate them on their creativity and hard work.
