YEAR 8 NEWS
Year 8s have been very busy this half term with many activities. During Monday registration we have been completing a range of activities and learnt new things about our world. Next term the year 8's will be completing a group project with the outcome of a book. Ask your child about this...
Tuesday afternoon we have our group reading sessions. Each class has been reading a book with their form tutors. This is helping all students to read aloud to groups of people, and will also help to prepare them for their GCSEs. The groups have been reading the following books
8K - Naughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
8E - Parent Agency by David Baddiel
8L - Lord of the Flies by William Golding
8M - Wonder by R.J Palacio
8S - Lottery Boy by Michael Bryne

Students have written a small book review which will be stuck into the books to give extra information to any student wanting to also read these books. Well done year 8's, super reading.
