Nice article

Just a quick one for any iGCSEers.

Following my post about ‘The Planners’ earlier in the week, I came across this lovely article about the transformation of Singapore that the poem concerns. Well worth a read, even if it probably won’t get you any extra marks.

If you are wondering why I have been so prolific this week it is because my other half has been away on a camping trip. I’ve never got so much work done! However, I’m glad she’s back as I’d transformed into a night owl, only getting a couple of hours sleep a night, and my diet mainly consisted of crisps as cooking seemed too much of an effort! I should have ‘Where I Come From’ published at some point this weekend, despite her presence.

Oh, and a quick bit of advice: if you haven’t started revising yet and getting your schedule in order, you’d better get on with it!

Although I've only been teaching Literature since 2011 and did my degree in History, I think that makes me better placed than many Lit teachers to provide notes that make sense and aren't garbled and wrapped up with inaccessible terminology and effluent nonsense. After adventures in Uganda and Uzbekistan, I am now settling down in the Netherlands. However, currently I am just about as unsettled as I have ever been, with a new job, a new baby, a new country and a hundred other things going on! Ask me a question, collaborate or abuse me.

  1. Hi.I love your website.We are studying the poems of Wilfred Owen for our AS course.Have you completed any analysis on these? Thanks Kate

    1. Thanks very much. I haven’t studied Wilf as an English teacher, but studied war poetry a decade or so ago for my A-levels. Probably not going to get anything on here for a considerable time, but there are loads of good websites around. I remember the BBC having amazing notes when I was studying… they must still be there.
