Reading has been a major focus for the English Department at Nightingale Centre, this term.

The Library area is looking great and students have been engaging in Accelerated Reader to enhance their progress. KS3 students have been exploring stories from around the world, including creation stories from Japan, Australia, Ancient Greece and Greenland. They have discussed what makes a good story and compared texts for similarities and differences. Students have worked together in small groups to create a presentation of their work. KS4 students have been preparing for their English Language and Literature GCSEs, in particular studying 19th Century texts.

Everyone had a fantastic World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. Students visited Waterstones and have all been given tokens to exchange for a book. Many students dressed up and took part in a range of book related activities. Students watched a live streaming broadcast of Macbeth performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in the morning.
