Screen Free Day
At the end of February half term, Year 7 and Year 8 pupils were assigned some screen free tasks to do in their English lessons. These tasks were based on 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' which they have been studying as part of their Shakespeare topic.
The English department set these tasks as an alternative to using computers, pupils have appreciated some screen free time, the tasks have also provided an opportunity for pupils to be more creative. The tasks broke away from typical exam style questions, which also allowed pupils to make their understanding of the texts more meaningful as they were pushed to understand their chosen character's feelings and motivations.
