Beautiful Work by C21

As part of the I fought the law and the law won expedition C21 students produced a piece of creative writing based on a particular style of writing within the crime genre. Students included historical context in their crime writing showing the depth of their understanding of crime and punishment in both either medieval times or the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Students produced several drafts together with a linguistic commentary on the stylistic choices and literary devices they had used to show that they understood the craft of writing.

Here’s just a few of these stories and commentaries.

Fantastic work C21!

Donations to Food Bank

This morning Noah, Alfie and Courtney took some of the gifts all our staff, students and families have donated to the Food Bank. They took 6 sacks with them today but there are still some more to send! Many thanks again to all those who have donated.

They also met some of the Frenchgate team there who took many more bags that their team, retailers and customers had donated.

C22 Expert Visits

Students in C22 have recently enjoyed a visit from a number of experts in connection with their current expedition ‘War! What is it good for?’ and to help them answer the guiding question ‘How has conflict shaped out world?’. Firstly, students experienced what it was like to be soldiers in WW1 with a visit from Doncaster Museum where they participated in trench cooking and trench building. Students also handled a number of WW1 artefacts and weapons and had the opportunity to have their burning questions answered by a second WW1/2 expert. Finally, students have had the chance to take part in a session delivered by the Doncaster Conversation Club who work with local asylum seekers and refugees to enhance their understanding of how and why people flee war-torn countries. Great work from all in C22!
