Year 11 GCSE English Literature Pupils Visit GCSE Poetry Live
Year 11 GCSE English Literature pupils travelled to Nottingham to hear Simon Armitage read his collection of poems from the AQA Power and Conflict cluster which the pupils are studying. Carol Ann Duffy, Imtiaz Dharker and John Agard all gave the pupils valuable insights into the GCSE poems the pupils will be examined on in May this year when they sit their GCSE Literature examination. Poets responded to pupils’ questions and discussed how their poems connected to other poems in the Power and Conflict cluster. Well done to Thomas who asked Carol Ann Duffy an excellent question on ‘War Photographer’.
Peter Buckroyd, chief examiner for GCSE Literature spoke about the two skills vital for success in the GCSE Examinations. The first session looked at how pupils might deal with unseen poems in the exam, both how to think about them and how to write for the best possible results. The second session looked at comparing poems and how to write effectively about them in the exam. All pupils commented on how valuable they had found the day to their revision of the poems.
Year 10 Crystal Growing
As part of their entry level science qualification the year 10 students have been growing a giant copper sulphate crystal.
Here is the crystal they grew at the end of the term. Each week it needed “feeding” with more copper sulphate solution which had to be made carefully to make sure that the crystal didn’t dissolve!
