Evil cackles, gruesome ghouls and violent battles have been the subject of our lessons this week. What really makes a monster? What are the metaphorical monsters that plague us? Is violence in literature acceptable? These are just some of the interesting and philosophical dilemmas that we have debated this week. I have been impressed with the maturity with which you have all handled these discussions and enjoyed reading your various creations of villains.

Next week we are going to try out a new routine where instead of people putting their hands up we are going to use a random generator to pick people. This will hopefully mean that you all get a chance to answer and I will be able to reward those who make the most effort with their answers.
