Exploring English

As part of a series of trips to the British library this term, on 29/11/18, year 10 attended the ‘Exploring English’ workshop in which they learnt some important facts about the history of the printed word, and viewed some rare artifacts including the first printing press as well as some extremely rare and original books. The day also included a workshop where they got to explore and discover works from famous writers in the viewing gallery and also learnt about where many of the words we use in our everyday language are derived from.
