Michael Grant Book Tour
We kicked off reading week by taking a group of Year 8 students to Wellington College to see Michael Grant talk about his new 'Front Line' series of books. He spoke about coming to writing later in life, and approaching it as a trade and means of making money as opposed to his life's calling as many authors do.
Students enjoyed the experience and all managed to get a signed copy of his special WBD book. When asked if they enjoyed it one student answered 'actually, yeah!' Is there any higher praise than that of unexpected enjoyment?
Michael Grant's new series, set on the front lines of WW2 imagines that women were also allowed to enlist and fight alongside men. Those, and others, will be available to students at the Waterstones Book Sale on Thursday 2nd March at lunchtime in the LRC. (Don't forget your WBD vouchers!)
Year 11 Exam drawing workshop led by Mrs E Hobbs (Head of Art at Woking College)
The following students participated in an after school drawing workshop led my Mrs Hobbs (Head of Art at Woking College) to develop preparatory studies for their Art exam work. Students found the session stimulating and enjoyable working in a free expressive manner. Outcomes were highly experimental and abstract resulting in new ways of thinking and approaches to art making.
