English

Statement of Purpose of English Curriculum:

Key Stage 3 students of English will be creative, enthusiastic and independent learners who understand the importance of English outside the classroom. They will be learners who read a wide range of texts for pleasure, aiding the development of their vocabulary, comprehension and imagination. They will begin to develop their emotional literacy by showing insight and empathy in their reading, and will be able to interpret and analyse a text with confidence. Students will be able to communicate their own ideas and opinions effectively and appropriately to a range of audiences through a variety of media. They will have a secure command of writing skills and will understand the benefit of editing and redrafting their own work; they will also be aware of their strengths and weaknesses in English. Learners will know how to use the tools available to be responsible, resourceful and independent and will be able to meet internal deadlines for projects and homework, asking for support where necessary.

Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)

Curriculum Summary

In the first three years of their secondary education, students will be encouraged to develop their joy of reading; they will explore a range of literary fiction and non-fiction texts. They will acquire and develop a range of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills that will prepare them for their studies and for their future careers.

In Year 7, students will travel from Ancient Greece to the trenches of World War 1 studying great writers such as Michael Morpurgo. On this journey they will read a range of poems, novels and short stories. Their reading will be the catalyst for them to produce some imaginative and original creative writing of their own.

In Year 8, students continue their journey from the 1600s to modern-day Britain; they will encounter texts from the literary canon to contemporary writers. The importance of novels, poetry and plays within their context will be considered and they will be encouraged to consider the social and historical contexts of what they read.  They will learn how to write in an informed and persuasive manner.

 

In Year 9, students will turn detective and investigate a range of texts such as Sherlock Holmes’ stories as well as studying a modern American novel. They will be exploring texts thematically and developing a range of writing skills to help produce effective pieces of work tailored towards the appropriate audience.
