Here we go, here we go, here we go …

I did promise you an online presence for advice, resources and discussion relating to your GCSE English courses, and here it is.

Obviously there’s not a lot here yet, other than this post, but together I hope we can make it a vibrant and useful online community.

Your call.

So use the ‘add comment’ feature NOW! If you want you can just introduce yourself, to let me know you’ve found this place. But if you have some suggestions for what you’d like to see on here (as well as blog entries, I can create pages with information and resources on them, add links, ooh, all sorts of stuff).

So come on in…

    Hi sir.

    Just letting you know I’m going to put a hyperlink to this website on my site:

    Most of my friends go on it, so just thought I’d spread the word. ^_^

    Crumbs! Now I’ve been linked to by Emma-Louise 😀 , I’d better get my finger out and start putting some useful content on here.

    It was nice of you to call me a ‘dedicated teacher’. If only it were true. Now, if you want some guidance from a truly dedicated teacher you should head along to Englishbiz (the link is in the Blogroll, over there in the sidebar ➡ )

  4. Mr Heald says:

    Sir I have a confession to make… I haven’t finished the book yet (I’m sooooooo ashamed) :(. But I’ve started reading on the bus and I’ve got through alot. But I don’t quite understand the part with the giant fly talking to Simon. Was it real or a figment of the mind?

  7. Mr Heald says:

    “Unobservable” I don’t know who you are. If you repost under your own name and in the proper place, I will reply.

    Same goes to other anonymous comments, which I am now going to have to waste time removing 😦

    Emma, I will get back to your question in due course, but will probably shift your comment alongside the other comments on Lord of the Flies, rather than leaving it orphaned here.

    I’m finding it really hard to know what to write about. Is it just finding a theory and writing about it as much as possible even if it is not directly related to the subject of the essay?

  9. Emma Louise says:

    Sir, you still haven’t answered my question. I got completly lost at the part of Lord of the Flies when Simon starts talking to a giant fly. Is it a figment or not? =-S

  10. Emma-Louise says:

    Sir the comments I’m leaving on sparknotes are under the username cheeseroxmysox (hey, its easy to remember. lol). I have currently opened a new thread on sparknotes asking about Simon and the pigs head at so if anyone wants to help me out then please feel free to reply to my thread. I’m trying to get as many idea’s about the idea of ‘pigs head- figment or not’ as I can. Thank you.

    There is no set event in this peice of the book: it is all about the way the reader deciphers the words. For example, if you read Robert Ludlum’s “The Aquitaine Progression” (its 783 pages!) towards the end, as Preston’s brother Connal is captured his death is never mentioned, but I believe I have interpreted from the text that he has died. After reading the book once, I realised I didn’t know what happened to Connal, so I reread that section and though he must have died. After reading it a third time, I am almost sure my assumption is correct, but it is all in how that particular chapter is read. It is similar to “Lord of the Flies”: no particular set occurence in that clearance, it all depends how deep you read.
