Transition Year have just started on their new course, first of all searching for topics and books for their Extended Essays. Click here for the full details of the course. In the coming weeks, there will be much here about this reading and these essays (culminating in publishing some of the best pieces in December/January).
They will also shortly be studying topics such as Anglo-Saxon and W.B. Yeats, as well as investigating images in poetry and working on creative writing. Their first literary text, in October, will be Twelfth Night (we are aiming this year for an innovative and exciting approach to this text). Other literary texts include To Kill a Mockingbird and A Streetcar Named Desire.
