Year 5 Lit Holiday Assignment

1)Work on your world lit assignment draft. Do get the greenlight from me first about your proposal and remember to abide by the guidelines given and avoid the pitfalls mentioned in the examiner's report, a copy of which will be given to you when you turn up for class next week.
2)Read up on James Joyce's "Dubliners" and Wilfred Owen's poetry if you are going over to Mr Toyne's class next term. If you are coming over to my class next term and you happen to read this, read up on Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels" (Book 4 ONLY).

Year 3 Lit Holiday Assignment

Very Simple task! Just get hold of a copy of the "Macbeth" text from the school bookshop and read the entire play! Do not get a book from other publisher; buy only the one sold in the sch bookshop. If you can't get hold of the book in time, just go search for it online and read it off there.

Happi Holidaez.............:)
