Pupils will develop their knowledge of language and literature, improving their communication and analytical skills. We promote an enjoyment of literature, encouraging children to read regularly and often.
In KS3 students build on prior grammatical knowledge to analyse and construct increasingly challenging texts.
English lessons aim to enhance existing skills, allowing children to develop an independence and confidence in their reading and writing. Reading, writing, grammar and spelling are covered in Key Stage 3. Children study a range of novels to develop their comprehension skills, as well as stimulating writing through a range of varied and stimulated approaches. Embedded in the curriculum and drama lessons are a range of opportunities for pupils to apply and develop their spoken English skills.
