IB English Language and Literature lessons have been exciting this week with our Y12 cohort sitting their very first Further Oral Activity. In response to the topic ‘Language in a Cultural Context’, the students performed a role play where they had to demonstrate their knowledge of how our culture, gender, age and ethnicity can determine the way we both utilise and understand language. From YouTube videos, speeches, television debates to ‘mockumentaries’, the students engaged their audience with fine theatrical skills, making full use of props and costumes. The week has been highly entertaining and has left Miss Neill and Mr Anderson full of pride that we have such hardworking and talented students.
