The pupils are taught by the Head of English to use their minds creatively to produce powerful and interesting stories by treating them as a mountaineer scaling Everest would do.

Pupils focus on the idea that specific equipment used by a mountaineer can reflect the creative writing tools used in English to create imaginative and structured writing.


Pupils also work through two lesson objectives in order to help them develop techniques in persuasive and argumentative writing and structuring work in and between paragraphs.


This programme, is part of our Uncut Classroom series where you can follow the lesson from beginning to end, unedited, watching either the teacher or the pupils' experience of the classroom.
