Tears in the eyes for Mr Eley’s Y8 English Class

Wednesday afternoon was somewhat more emotional than usual for my Y8 class, as we read the final few pages of John Boyne’s novel The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Without wishing to ruin the novel for anybody who hasn’t read it, its climax is something of a tear-jerker and it left a few of us reaching for the tissues. I was really pleased to see how engrossed learners were by this fabulous story and I would recommend checking out the author John Boyne’s website if you fancy reading some of his other work. As we know, reading regularly for pleasure is vital for success in English, so I hope that this will spur learners on to pick up another great book in the near future!
