Congratulations to Confident Year 7s at English Showcase
Over 30 Year 7 students were involved in an English Showcase after school on 15th January. The students took part in performances and presentations of their English Curriculum work to an audience made up of parents of both Year 7 and Year 6 students.
Among the entertainments were dramatized roleplays prompted by ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ and readings of fictional letters from characters in the novel. Students also showed off their rhetorical skills in persuasive speeches. The performances were closed with a lively reading by Lilia Chila, who chose a passage from ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl.
Parents also had a chance to view a selection of Year 7 exercise books and display work and were impressed by the rapid progress the students are making in the subject. The growing talent and confidence of our Year 7 cohort was clearly evident and we congratulate all who took part.
