Curriculum enhancement STEM Club As well as actively engaging our students with practical activities during the lessons, we also run a STEM Club where students have the chance to take part in different scientific investigations. It is designed to have scientific experimentation at the forefront. Typically, students will carry out a series of planned investigations and communicate their findings to each other in a safe and stimulating environment. Our students are also provided with opportunities to enter nationwide competitions to exercise their abilities in Scientific research.
English It is our vision in the English Faculty to create independent learners. From Year 7 students begin on a pathway meet their academic potential and to become successful readers, writers and speakers.
We actively encourage discussion and team work in the classroom to encourage students to use skills which will prepare them for life outside of school. The new curriculum begins in Year 7. We use the information we receive from Primary Schools to place students in appropriate groups and to ensure that their transition to our school is as seamless as possible.
Initially, Year 7s enjoy a two to three week transition unit which gives them time to settle in and understand our high expectations of both attitude and behaviour. Once settled in, their learning journey begins with autobiographical reading and writing. Our hope is that each child makes their expected progress and that they flourish; becoming confident in all English skills.
This journey takes students all the way to Year 11, when they are prepared thoroughly for their terminal examinations. Furthermore, when we study texts we also study their social, historical and moral contexts which only help children in their understanding of the world around them.
Throughout the five year curriculum, formative and summative assessment informs the class room teacher of student progress. They will also study a wide variety of poems and a few short stories along the way.
Students will be given many opportunities to improve their writing, including revising and practising grammar, punctuation and spelling; they will write letters, speeches, advertisements, short stories, journals, new articles; all designed to encourage creativity and versatility in their writing.
Following this, they will undertake the non-examination assessment which is a single essay based on two texts of their choice. In order to support students, we teach one novel to the class for example The Picture of Dorian Gray and then give students the option to choose one text to compare and contrast to the class reader; or should they have the ability to, they can have the freedom of choosing both texts.
This is an interesting unit and one which the students enjoy. It teaches them close reading skills, independent and analytical thought, how to use critical views and how to plan, draft and improve their work. In Year 13, they go on to study texts based on and set in World War One.GCSE EXM IMEBLE MY/UE C AA A C K J N O Q T W X V Y Z Search by subject alphabetically GCSE subjects and components/units C C Code Type Notes Duration Date am/ pm Chemistry Contact us | Secure services | Examiner Extranet.
