This term we have been thinking and writing about abstract concepts. We produce creative and personal writing on beauty, inspired not by particularly fortunate humans but by the Humber Bridge, a familiar structure with a unique beauty. The next topic was "coincidence" – we knew these occurred but did not realise how regularly they featured in our lives, sometimes heralding very significant events. This was a difficult subject for creative writing so we decided to study the Booker Prize nominated crime thriller 'Snap' by Belinda Baur. Our final subject for this term was "intuition", coinciding with Halloween and the return of dark nights.
We also saw 'An Inspector Calls' by JB Priestly at the New Theatre – the audience consisted of 20 adults and hundreds (literally) of Year 11 students from local schools, who were excellently behaved. This production was an excellent example of how stage setting can contribute to both the plot and message of a play, a topic we studied earlier. Finally, some of us attended the Literary Lunch at the Triton Inn organised by the charity 'Osprey' to listen to and meet the best-selling author, Milly Johnson. John Munson.
