In our department meeting last week, the English team was thinking about interesting/engaging/motivational homeworks that we could set for our younger classes - year 7 and 8, 11-13 year olds. One conversation centred around the students making playlists for novels, plays and poems that we are studying. That made me think about what the soundtrack for Garden of Stars would be... and here it is.
I'd love to know what you think - anything to add? Anything that doesn't work at all for you? Let me know.
GARDEN OF STARS soundtrack:
Title track: ANGELS DON’T CRY by The Psychedelic Furs
