Creating an atmosphere

Form 7 have been writing chilling stories about a haunted mansion.

It's been all about the atmosphere this week in English. The class has been writing stories using the premise of  'show, don't tell' to build atmosphere and suspense in a story based around a haunted mansion, called Darkwood Manor. The finished pieces are chilling and vivid and a testament to the superb writing skills the children have developed over the past few years. 

Many members of the class have contributed to making decorations for King's Hospital Children's High Dependency Unit and we hope that their gingerbread houses, men and women will bring a smile to some young faces this Christmas.

Finally, congratulations to the members of the class who achieved excellent results in recent music exams.
