  1. Hi Miss North, I was wondering which books do we study next year in L6? I’m reading ‘The Great Gatsby’ at the moment, but I can’t remember which other books we will be focusing on in September.
    Thanks, Siobhan

    1. Hello! Hope you’re enjoying the ‘summer’.

      We’re going to start the year with the coursework – this will consist of two essays on comedies – a Shakespearean one and a modern one. It’s a new unit so we’ve only just decided what texts to study.

      You can start off with ‘The History Boys’ by Alan Bennett, which will be the modern one.

      As for the Shakespeare, it will be either Much Ado About Nothing, or The Comedy of Errors, depending on which I can get tickets for. (They’re both on in London in September, and you have to see Shakespearean comedy, otherwise it’s not funny at all.) I’m going into school tomorrow, so I’ll book tickets then and let you know.

      Of course the unit is about the genre of comedy, rather than the two texts, so read lots of funny plays! Why not watch some Monty Python one rainy afternoon?

      I’ll put together a reading list.
