Welcome to English Language and English Literature

English Language

Pupils will study a range of fictional and non-fiction texts to develop their reading and writing skills. This means they will read extracts from novels, short stories, newspapers, leaflets and websites, analysing how the writers achieve their purpose. Pupils will also learn how to write a successful short story, as well as practising to write letters, articles, leaflets, speeches, reports and reviews. There is also a spoken language assessment where they will perform a speech in front of their teacher and a small group of peers.

English Literature

Pupils will study a Shakespeare play (‘Macbeth’), a 19th century novel (‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens) and a 20th century play (‘An Inspector Calls’ by JB Priestley) through Years 9-11. They will also study a wide range of poems through the EDUQAS Poetry Anthology, including writers such as Simon Armitage and Wilfred Owen.
