Welcome back! This term promises to be a busy one. Next week is the musical (if you haven’t bought your tickets, do so now!), there is also Action Week and end-of-year exams.

The focus for the next couple of weeks is to complete the ‘Movie assignment’. I hope you have all had a chance to see the poem you have been given. By the end of this week, it would be greatly appreciated if you have all the technology sorted out.

By the time I have finished this post, this blog will have received close on 3000 hits. I wanted to celebrate at 2000, but I was flying back to Malaysia at the time. I would like to thank my students again for their contributions -thank you to you for taking the opportunity to visit this site, thus making the experience of reading and studying literature a more dynamic experience. Many of you have expressed in your comments that you have found it very helpful, and in that, we have achieved our aim.
