English



 
YEAR 7
 
The curriculum plan is designed to act as a foundation year for secondary English, introducing the students to a range of literary, non-fiction, Shakespeare and poetry texts. In studying these we are seeking to develop reading, writing, critical thinking and oracy skills gained in primary school and prepare students for further development of these skills in Year 8.
 

  • Students in X4 and Y4 follow the ‘Hackney Lit’ program to accelerate their basic literacy skills development.
  • To develop Level 2 vocabulary, all students complete a minimum of 2 Bedrock ‘lessons’ a week online for their homework.

 

 
YEAR 8
 
The curriculum within Year 8 consciously builds on skills and knowledge gained in Year 7 and looks forward to Year 9. The sequence of topics aims to balance non-fiction and literary texts through several shorter text anthologies supplemented with whole text analysis; the skills and contextual knowledge arising from exploring these texts are cumulative and act as a stepping-stone towards more challenging texts in Year 9.

YEAR 9
 
Building on Year 8’s study, the Year 9 curriculum is designed to be a platform for refining skills and developing knowledge required for Key Stage 4 as well as introducing new literary concepts. For example, through studying a whole novel as well as the Gothic genre during the Autumn, students are prepared for the introduction of their first GCSE Literature text in the Summer Term (‘Jekyll and Hyde’). Through studying a second full Shakespeare text, knowledge of context, language and dramatic devices are further developed whilst study of a collection of Love Poetry is designed to help prepare students to study a cluster of themed poems later in Key Stage 4.
 

  • A small number of students benefit from additional curriculum support time which alternates between boosting basic skills, supporting main class topics and following the AQA Functional Skills program.
  • To develop Level 2 vocabulary, all students complete a minimum of 2 Bedrock ‘lessons’ a week online for their homework.

 

 
YEAR 10
 
Due to the legacy curriculum structure, for only one year (2019-20) students will revise both the AQA GCSE English and Literature courses and texts respectively, building on prior skills and knowledge. Focusing on literary texts first, we aim to revise and refine key knowledge and skills. With increased interleaving of topics within lessons we aim to develop retention of key knowledge and concepts. We explicitly teach skills for the English GCSE during the summer term in preparation for their end of Year exams which

YEAR 11
 
Due to the legacy curriculum structure 2019-20 requires students to revise both the AQA GCSE English and Literature courses. Focusing on literary texts first, we aim to revise and refine key knowledge and skills. With increased interleaving of topics within lessons we aim to develop retention of key knowledge and concepts. We explicitly teach skills for the English GCSE during the summer term in preparation for their end of Year exams which in turn builds a platform for a differentiated approach to skills and topics covered in Year 11.
 

  • All students are entered for GCSE English and Literature exams.
