The students in the History & Culture class have been working on building a website covering various aspects about the UK. Some students worked alone, others in groups of 2 or 3, linking their pages together on the completed website. On their last lesson before the Easter break, they published their websites live on the web, the links and names of the students are below for you to view.

Last Saturday we had to be at school at 11 am. Mr Reid had given us a letter on Thursday but told us not to open it until that morning. When we opened it, it told us to make our way to Waterstones (a book store in the town centre) and look for a book about angels. At first we didn’t understand that we should look for a book we had read in book club, but luckily Maria picked the book up anyway and we found our next clue.
This sent us to Camillas (a really cool old second hand book store) where we found our next clue in A Monster Calls, another book we read in book club. This clue sent us to Nelson’s café, where we for train tickets to Lewes and a hot chocolate, thank you Mr. Reid☺.
We took the next train to Lewes and had to look for a country music store. First we couldn’t find the store so we went into another music store to ask where itwass. They couldn’t help us but in the end we found the store, thanks to a postman. This clue said, we should text a number, and we got our next clue like that.
We should find a bear, but we couldn’t find it, but we saw a Waterstones and someone said we should get in there, just to look of course, but we didn’t expect to find Mr. Reid in there. So in the end we didn’t have to go to the last clue and Mr. Reid gave us all a 10 pound value card for Waterstones.
Every clue was a rhyme and a mystery so we always had to find out first where we had to go. It was an amazing afternoon and we hope we can do something like that again.
Recently some girls have started to play football regularly with some English girls here is one students’ views of being a goalie.
We all know the struggle to find a goalie for a football team. Nobody wants to do it. I actually don’t know what’s so bad about being in goal. I play football in a team and I’ve done it a few times. It’s really boring sometimes and you have a lot pressure on you.
But you don’t have a lot to do so if you’re not in mint condition, just go into the goal. Even if you’re playing in a team, as a goalie, you’re ‚playing‘ alone. If the defenders fail, there’s only the goalie left and that’s not easy when the whole team counts on you to save it. But the good thing is that you’re like a hero when you make that awesome save.
There’s a chance you might get the football kicked in your face or other unpleasant parts of your body. Most people are anxious about that. The point is that you would help your team much more if you want to be in the goal or even try it. Basically, love your goalie and don’t judge them if they didn’t save the ball. They have a difficult ‚job‘ and it’s absolutely not their fault when things go wrong.
Dieses Semester haben wir Märchen analysiert. Wir haben uns Märchen aus der Perspektive der Psychoanalyse und aus der feministischen Perspektive angeschaut und überlegt, wie man ein altes Märchen in die heutige Zeit übersetzen würde. Zuletzt haben die Schüler und Schülerinnen ein Märchen mit folgender Formel geschrieben:
– Sprachlicher Märchenstil
– Moral für Kinder
– Happy End
– Held/Heldin muss Taten erledigen
– Ort und Zeit sind unbestimmt
– 2-dimensionale Personen
– Nummern und Reim

In German lessons we were writing in the style of an editor, writing their monthly editorial. This work was based on the ‚editor‘ coming to the UK and then writing an ironic or satirical piece about their experience. Most wrote about the traffic, food and the houses but this one stuck out as it was not only very well written but showed that the writer had done some research on the topic. She encompasses all the traits a short editorial needs to have: short, thoughtful and ironic.
