The Year We Won’t Forget – Year 7 English Creative Writing Project


2020 has definitely been a challenging year for all of us. Especially for Year 7 students who have just started their first year of high school when Coronavirus hit and they had to go to lockdown.

Upon returning to school, as a part of a creative project for English, students in 7ENGD and 7ENGS were asked to reflect on their thoughts and feelings during this unprecedented time. This is how our creative writing project ‘The Year We Won’t Forget’ was born. The Year 7 students wrote their own stories using various forms, such as poems, short stories, diary entries and news reports.

We hope this collection will provide an insight into how the students felt this year and it will give you a chance to celebrate their creativity.

The link to an e-book version of the project will be e-mailed to you shortly.

Hope you will enjoy it!
