Welcome to Parrenthorn’s English Department blog.
This year is set to be an exciting one for the English department, here at Parrenthorn, and what better way to keep you all updated on the amazing work of our pupils than through the blog?
While the blog is managed and run primarily by myself (Miss Willcox) I have enlisted the help and support of students across the school to provide blog posts with wonderful creative writing opportunities; fascinating book reviews, chances to showcase their own work and even letting you know what they are learning.
As well as being a celebration of great achievement and effort we will also use the blog as a way to keep in touch with pupils and parents about upcoming department events, novels and schemes of learning.
Based on some of the brilliant work our pupils have already completed I’m thrilled about the opportunity to share this with you all in blog form; from year 7’s writing ‘Escape’ stories to year 10 embarking on their GCSE’s this blog will have all you need to know about the fantastic work and effort our pupils put into English.
We’ll also have tips for GCSE revision and encouraging pupils to read and write for pleasure. With so much going on we can’t keep it to ourselves.
We hope you enjoy reading the blog and can join in the celebrations with us.
