Our fantastic Year 10 students have begun looking at the Vikings as part of the history GCSE period study. The guiding question for this expedition is ‘Who were the Vikings?’, and it has been lovely to see such beautiful work being produced by students already!

Today students were reading texts about different accommodation on holiday and matching it to the correct images, with vocabulary they had just learnt. Well done X22!

C21 Beautiful Work

We had a great day on fieldwork at Sheffield Hallam University today, working with the Extended Degree Programme Art and Design students.  Everyone worked hard and produced beautiful work throughout the day.  We were really well looked after and we’re looking forward to working with SHU again.

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!
