Learning Outside the Classroom
Miss Burke had the inspirational idea of using our new security fencing to bring to life 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne which her Year 7 English class are studying at the moment.
It provided a good example of the benefits of Learning Outside the Classroom.
Year 7 used the fence to simulate the fence at Auschwitz which provides the setting for this novel about the Holocaust and its effect upon two young boys, Bruno and Shmuel.
The fence allowed the Year 7s to experience how the two boys from such different backgrounds, one Jewish and one German, would feel when talking to one another.
