Dickens, Sherlock and Schwarma

Ms. Jones organised an amazing trip yesterday for our Grade 8s and 9s!

We got students to download the Guardian's Dickens Walk podcasts over the weekend. The podcasts takes you all around the city, explaining to you why it is was important to Dickens and also including some extracts from his text. The students really enjoyed the trip and every single one of them listened to the podcasts at each location and contributed to our discussion! I was very proud. We didn't manage to do the whole thing, but will leave more time for it if we do it again!
You can find out more about the route and the podcast here.

We also went past the Sherlock Holmes museum and our grade 9s gave the grade 8s some mini lectures about Sherlock Holmes! We then ended up going to Chipotle for burritos, instead of for Lebanese, but obviously had no complaints!

Another rad event planned by Ms. Jones!
