Day 6 - Transition Work

Good morning Year 11

I hope you had a good weekend and are ready to face some new transition challenges.

Today is getting you to think creatively. Now, those of you who know me (or will get to know me next year) know that poetry and creative writing is very close to my heart. So it may come as no surprise that today's challenge asks you to use your creativity.

These exercises are designed to get you thinking creatively and that is a key to success in all A Level subjects: any subject will ask you to essentially problem solve in a creative way. I also think you will enjoy them and could produce something brilliant and unexpected.
