Somewhere In The Sun - English At The Key Havant
by Ms English
This year in our English lessons at The Key Havant, some of our Key Stage 3 groups have been reading and studying the book Dark Waters by Cathy Macphail. The story focuses on a young boy called Col, his family and the events which lead to him questioning everything he previously believed. The twists and turns in the book have kept all the pupils gripped.
Other Key Stage 3 pupils have been designing and planning their own holiday island. This requires them to use problem-solving and decision-making skills to plot their island. This will culminate in them presenting their concepts and ideas to their peers.
Key Stage 4 pupils are currently working on developing their skills and improving their confidence in preparation for their upcoming GCSE exams. It is hoped that they will apply themselves to their work and their revision over the course of the next few weeks and months.
