Tomorrow is a-level results. Eek!
I am very excited to see how well my Year 13's have done as they were my most motivated, enthusiastic and hard working class I've ever had in my six years of teaching.
Some of them I have taught for four years and they were really on board with the way I teach.
We were studying Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and we did a court case in character and costumes and it was hilarious!
They made learning journals (which my colleagues said was my way of getting scrapbooking nito the curriculum!) with magazine montages, time lines, comic strips and anything creative to help them revise the characters and themes.
The module was called 'elements of the gothic' and so at Christmas we decided to have a gothic secret santa - we picked a name out of the hat and then had to spend a pound on a gothic themed gift for that person. Everyone did really well and some of them made cupcakes and homemade fudge.
So here is a layout using MME papers:
They are the sweetest class and I am wishing them good luck for tomorrow - but they all worked hard and deserve to do so well. I will miss them all when they go to university in September!
