Virtual Open Evening – 2020
Video 4 – English
In the third of our Year 6 Open Evening subject videos we spend a frantic 60 seconds with our English Faculty as they transport us to worlds beyond imagination!
Watch as the power of reading can transform an overcast afternoon on the grey North East coast to a fantastic adventure in Wonderland, somewhere over the rainbow in Oz or searching for treasure on a deserted island! You can travel to Victorian times with Dickens, gasp in horror at the defiance of nature of Frankenstein or tread the musty corridors of Hogwarts with Harry Potter and the gang.
Studies have shown that reading for pleasure can have a direct link to improved attainment at GCSE level, and our passionate English Faculty are keen to support this, alongside a dedicated Literacy programme and a well-stocked and fantastically staffed school library.
Where’s Wally isn’t the only character to look out for however, don’t forget to keep an eye out for a member of staff on a ‘Guess Who’ card, as well as one of our 6Rs hidden somewhere in the video. Another piece of the puzzle which could win your family a games console.
We’ve been oversubscribed at Year 7 for the last three years, and anticipate demand will be high again next September, so please, don’t hesitate when it comes to making us your first choice for starting Key Stage 3.
