Our objective in KS3 English is to maintain the magic and facilitate the future; we aim to foster the love that all children have for stories and use it as a platform from which to build improved technical skill and a deeper understanding of how writers use a range of devices to create an effect on their readers.
Currently, Year 7 students have seven lessons across the two-week timetable while Year 8 students have eight. At least one of the lessons each fortnight will be given over to independent reading in order to encourage each student's reading skills. This is structured through the Accelerated Reading programme which ensures that students progress through steadily more challenging texts.
Over course of Key Stage 3 students will study units based on a range of resources including:
All of these units will help to build key skills for GCSE study in years 9-11.
