On Tuesday 27 February (and before the snow), 45 of our Year 7 students went back to their primary schools for the day to work with Year 6 students on a story writing project, 'Inspiring Writing'. Students from all year groups in the primary schools within the Tone Valley Partnership worked on a story that day, all with the same starting point of “What if I drank this potion?”. Some Kingsmead students in Years 7 and 8 did the same in their English lessons. The plan is for stories to be shared in English lessons this week.
Pictured are Year 7 students at their primary schools, making potions (bicarbonate and vinegar balloons) to help gather together ideas for their stories. We hope to include one or two of the finished stories in our next newsletter out at the end of term!
