The World Around Us
In the future I’d like to see,

Just pick it up and put it in the bin,
nature can grow and we all can win.

We’ve been getting the best out of our writing by using blind-folds to challenge our senses!
Form 4 & 5 pupils thoroughly enjoyed their first lesson of Oracy whereby they learnt about ‘freeze frames’ and ‘split screens’. Pupils created a freeze frame from Chapter One of Varjak Paw. They depict the scene when the strange man enters the Contessa’s house bringing with him two sleek black cats. Varjak Paw looks on, feeling dizzy…
