The end of term saw the finale of Y8's Ghostly Tales project - a combination of dance, film and story writing. After spending half a term in English looking at Gothic literature including 'Jekyll and Hyde', 'The Woman in Black' , 'Dracula', Y8 were challenged to write their own Gothic re-telling of the awakening of Mary Shelly's famous creation - Frankenstein. They then used these stories in their music lessons where they learnt how to use ipads to compose digital atmospheric music to accompany their stories and create audio books. In PE, they put together dance routines based on a Gothic style and , finally, as a homework project they were challenged to create their own film trailers to accompany an imaginary film version of their stories. We were then treated to a wonderful afternoon of creativity and Y7 were able to see what they will have to live up to next year!
