Year 10 have settled well into the routine of GCSE English and are embracing the study of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (a text they will be examined on). Any students who have not yet purchased their copy of the text can still do so via Mrs Snowdon. The cost of the text is £4.20.
Year 11 have returned ready to go and we have been impressed by their attitudes. This term in Year 11, students will be studying poetry and also the 19th Century text Jekyll and Hyde or A Christmas Carol. Any students who have not yet purchased their copy of the texts can still do so via Mrs Snowdon. The cost of the text is £2.50.
All students have access to a GCSE Pod account where they will find brilliant revision pods for English Language and Literature (as well as other subjects). I would encourage all Year 11 students to be starting their preparation for the November mock exams. They should be preparing to sit English Language Paper 1 and Romeo and Juliet, and Blood Brothers for Literature. We have also launched a KS4 revision library this year in room 7, where students will find a range of revision books and practice exams to support their exam preparation. All KS4 students are welcome to access this resource.
