In Year 8 we have been working on a reading project. We chose a novel, play or poem we hadn’t read before to enjoy and learn from.
Once we had finished reading our chosen texts we were asked to explore them in three different ways. We had to focus on its author, context and the text itself.
For the author we researched the writer’s background. When we researched its context we looked at what inspired the author to write the text and how their background may have affected their writing. In our analysis we focused on important sections of the text and how they reflected its themes and characters.
Earlier this week we presented our projects to the whole year group in a mini-fair. It’s been a really fun activity!
