Update from TPR
The TPR topic this term, for the Senior School is Theology. Year 6 have studied six stories of Jesus in detail. They have examined the differences between stories and parables and were amazed at how the least likely people ended up trusting in Jesus. Several pieces of excellent work were displayed, of diary entries by characters in the stores and a Headmaster’s Commendation was awarded to Charlotte F for her stop motion Lego movie of Zacchaeus!
Year 7 have begun their analysis of Old Testament stories and have begun their essay writing journey. They have discussed the dilemma of punishment versus forgiveness and made some startling observations of how these are still issues today in the 21st Century. They have ended the term looking at the very thorny problem of the awesome responsibility our leaders and modern day ‘celebrities’ have in setting a good role model for others.
Year 8 have been analyzing the world changing work of Dr. Martin Luther King and stories from the Old testament, applying what they have learnt in response to some very challenging Common Entrance essays. They wrapped up the year with their own interpretation of the story of the Prodigal Son with literally a couple of ‘raps’ from some of the year 8s!
