6K Reading Gladiators
6K Gladiators discussed symbolism and allegory in The Secret Horses of Briar Hill. Our discussion led us on to consider more overarching themes within the novel such as the fight between good and evil, angels and devils, does the end always justify the means, War as a disease and so on. 6K are showing themselves to be accomplished debaters!
6W Reading Gladiators
6W Gladiators have found The Secret Horses of Briar Hill both compelling and poignant. We had animated discussions about symbolism and allegory as we tried to identify what different characters, events and objects might represent.
How do our views about characters change?
We are really enjoying meeting characters and reading on to discover more about why they behave it certain ways.
We were shocked to learn about how Thomas was treated and we are learning lots about Benny and his motivation.
Let the challenge begin!
