Derwentwater - Bringing Books Alive

Class: Mr Carruthers - Derwentwater Year: 2022 - 2023

In English, we have been working with a book called The Promise.


We have been using similes, metaphors, personification, and other figurative language to describe the mood of the city in the book.


We took our ideas outside and drew them around the school to try and spread the city's mood around school.
