English Department News
In KS3 English news, year 7 are studying a unit called ‘Poetry vs. Lyrics’. Students are recapping poetic techniques and looking at the meaning and symbolism behind poems and lyrics to songs. Year 8 are studying Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Students are familiar with the plot of the play from work they did in year 7 so they are looking in more depth and detail at key scenes, characters and themes. Year 9 are students studying a unit on body image. This unit enables them to look at how the media influences their self-confidence and self-image.
In KS4 English news, year 10 are studying unseen poetry for a section of their exam. Students are recapping poetic techniques and how to analyse them in detail. Year 11s have recently sat a mock examination. The effort and commitment of the year 11s at the moment is exceptional- thank you and keep it up!
