Looking @ Learning: Year 7 English

There has been some super sleuthing happening in the English department at Lea Manor as Year 7 are studying a unit of work on Forensic Linguistics. As well as examining a range of different features of spoken and written language, variations in style and social attitudes to particular variants, students have been tasked with solving a mystery designed by actual Forensic Linguists from the University of Newcastle.

We spoke to the Year 7 students in Ms Nicholls' class who said "we are having a fantastic time becoming Forensic Linguists and solving an incredible mystery by using skills and techniques we have been taught in our English classes."
