Welcome to English in Year 7! Your first few days may seem daunting and scary, but be rest assured that your teachers, and older students, will be around to support you with all of your work and day-to-day school needs.
From day 1, the English team will be preparing you for all the skills you need to succeed in later years; from your very first day, we will begin to prep you for later life by exploring different novels that explore gender, the role of women, men and children across the many different eras. As well as this, you will have the chance to delve into some of the world’s most popular plays from Shakespeare to Priestley (you will be amazed and how we can simplify many different texts and make it manageable for you). You will also have the chance to prepare speaking and listening presentations too.
We look forward to welcoming you into our classrooms. Good luck and have a great summer!
