Year 7 English at HASN/HAUN

Curriculum

Year 7 English at HASN/HAUN

Throughout the year, students will explore challenging literary texts, hone their analytical and writing skills, and improve their ability in Speaking and Listening! They will develop a love of reading and become proficient in literacy.

We are currently studying (Spring):

‘Trash’ by Andy Mulligan

Next term (Summer), we will be studying:

‘Warhorse (play script) by Michael Morpurgo (adapted by Nick Stafford) and War Poetry

  • How are students assessed, and what do the reports mean?
  • Students take a formal termly English Language assessment, which includes a 1 hr reading section and a 45-min writing section. This is marked by teachers.
  • Based on this mark, an Academy Most Likely Grade (AMLG) is calculated. This suggests what your child may achieve at the end of Year 11 if they continue at the same rate of progress.
  • In addition, teachers decide on a Teacher Most Likely Grade (TMLG). This is based on their knowledge of your child’s classwork as well as the assessment; it is a more holistic prediction.

 

Assessment Dates:

Spring: w/c 6th February 2017

End of Year: w/c 19th June 2017

 

How can you help?

Building vocabulary:

  • Step One: Invest in a big dictionary.
  • Step Two: Read with your child for 20-30 minutes each day. (Fiction or Non-fiction).
  • Step Three: Highlight words they don’t know.
  • Step Four: Find the definition.
  • Step Five: Challenge them to use the new piece of vocabulary in four different sentences. 

 

Support with homework or revision:

Use sites such as:

  • BBC Bitesize KS3 – this is particularly good for revising writing for specific purposes.
  • BBC Skillswise – aimed at adult learners, but useful for functional literacy

 

Workbooks:

We sell KS3 English workbooks in our LRC at HASN – if your child needs extra practice, these are ideal.
