Gothic Horror

Year 7 have been studying and writing gothic horror.
7K1 studied an extract from "The Red Room by HG Wells and demonstrated their understanding by drawing the room - using the author's description.
Below are Hinesh and Hannah's interpretations.


7K1 and 7J1 enjoyed finding out about Mackenzie's Poltergeist - and particularly like the video we watched on You Tube.  This led  to pupils using a story mountain as a tool for planning an effective story of their own.

Check out Mollie's below.

    The drawings are excellent. You can tell you have really understood and used your imagination on what the author was trying to explain
