Advice For New Year 11s

 It has been a funny year for us all. Exams were cancelled for the first time in over 60 years and it was a strange experience indeed. Here, I have a few tips that are specifically going to help the upcoming year 11s, although, I do think anyone can apply them.  I know that I would have loved to see a post like this, this time last year as it is worrying to think about! 1. Use Your Planner Whether it's an ordinary planner issued by your school or an academic diary it is really important that you use this. You will need it to write down dates for exams, deadlines for homework notes so you don't forget items. My planner was a huge help and I have no idea how I would have survived without it. They are issued for a reason so make sure you use them! 2. Keep Yourself Organised This kind of runs off from my previous point, but by simply ensuring that your folders are organised, you are saving yourself a lot of time.

When Shadows Fall - Sita Brahmachari Blog Tour

 Welcome back! Today's blog post is an extra special one, dedicated to Sita Brahmachari's new book, 'When Shadows Fall'.  Aside, from its stunning cover, and the book focuses on the poignant tale of Kai, Orla, Zak and Omid, 4 friends who are in their youths.

Sita's aim was to document the children she saw over a period of many years, being outsiders, having no place in the world. This is strongly seen through the character of Kai. Having become friends with Natalie over 25 years ago, when their children were young, this is Sita and Natalie's first book together. Sita described it as 'This book is the

Bi-DEN Trump

 This article is a little outdated but I thought I would post it to the blog this week as a different read, it is related to recent events in America. Enjoy! The article was written in November 2020, a week after a victory was declared for current US president Joe Biden. Image: NBCNews.com Well, what an extraordinary year 2020 has been for many of us, impacting us in some way or shape, and for many defining our future! One of the biggest news stories alongside COVID-19 has been the political events that have happened in the US; for many the biggest election in the history of the United States. That’s right, earlier this month over 155 million people voted and used their political voice, the biggest voter turnout ever in the US. Not only this, but a fantastic historical achievement was made; Kamala Harris became the first elected female vice president - an achievement definitely worth celebrating from across the pond! With it being the most talked about and publicised election ever you
