  • Outreach Day

    Published 19/03/19

    On Friday 15 March, we took part in an outreach project with Year 7 students from both our school and Shoreditch Park Academy, in order to produce a piece of creative writing inspired by “Spring Pools” by Robert Frost. This allowed us to work with younger and older years, as there was a Year 11 student working with each group. This enabled us to incorporate our ideas well, even though we had not met each other before. We found it interesting to see how most of the Year 7s were initially shy and nervous, but then began to open up and discuss and negotiate their ideas with each other.
