Year 8 students were left awestruck after watching a live Gothic performance by London's Redheart Theatre company today. The students were astonished by the actor's versatility and the way he was able to create so many characters through subtle changes in voice, posture and costume. The performance truly captivated the students and was a great way to reward them for the hard work they have been putting into their own Gothic writing this half term. Even some of the teachers got a chill down their spine!

Taneeka was set a homework project to Design and build a historically accurate model of a Saxon villiage. The time and effort that went into constructing this model clearly shows the commitment that Taneeka has to her learning. She received a Golden Ticket for this work. https://t.co/FnWj5XrdUz OSWBAcademy photo
