Subjects Taught: English
What We Teach
We build a strong foundation in spelling, punctuation and grammar. This runs alongside the focus on reading a broad range of texts including fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and twentieth century classics.
In addition, we put an emphasis on writing skills, especially creative and persuasive writing as well as writing for a specific audience and purpose. Developing student's ability to evaluate the language used by a writer is a complex skill that we also focus on.
At Key stage 4, our English sessions are a blend of English language and English Literature; this prepares them to meet the demands of the GCSE exams.
In English, each child will receive a writing piece of work to complete every week,
ensuring that they utilise the full repertoire of literacy devices they are taught.
