Head of English – Mrs R Cunnington
Pupils should be completing a persuasive speech and preparing a presentation to give to others to develop their speaking and listening skills. Students should spend no more than two hours a week on this. Resources and support can be found in Google Classroom.
Pupils should be analysing poetry and developing their inference and evaluative skills. The tasks will develop the reading skills necessary to complete the final assessment piece, which requires students to compare two poems. All resources can be found in Google Classroom. They should spend no more than two hours a week on this.
Pupils should continue to study the novel Of Mice and Men (a copy is available on Google Classroom) as part of the GCSE English Literature course. Students should re-read the novel and complete revision tasks set for them in preparation for the mock exam at the end of the Summer Term. This should take them no more than two hours a week and all work is accessible through Google Classroom.
Pupils are required to research and write a speech as part of the GCSE English Language course (worth 10%). Students should follow the links provided to resources that support the process and spend time researching their chosen topic. Over the course of the next few weeks, students will write a speech and practise presentation skills. When Year 10 return to school, these speeches will be presented formally and grades awarded. All resources and work submission will be through Google Classroom.
