Poetry Anthology, Non-Fiction Writing and Speaking and Listening

You will start this term finishing your work on the ‘Power and Conflict’ poetry anthology. It is essential that all of your poems are annotated before we return to school. You will then move on to complete the ‘Finding Your Voice Booklet. You are going to be learning how to express your opinions effectively and you are going to read a brilliant array of non-fiction texts to inspire you.

By the end of the term, you will know how to answer Paper 2, Section B and you will have written your speech for your speaking and listening exam. You will perform these in Term1 of Y11.

Term 5 

This term you are going to be finishing the poetry anthology. During your four hours of English per week you should:

  1. Complete three lessons in your booklet (per week)
  2. Complete one hour of revision ( A Christmas Carol, Poetry, AQA Language)
  3. Use your term 5 knowledge organiser to learn and revisit key concepts and vocabulary. Make sure that you are testing yourself regularly.
  4. Use your knowledge organisers from earlier in the year to revise key concepts and vocabulary. It is important that you do not forget what you have already learnt.

Every week, your English teacher is going to schedule a live lesson with you. It is important that you attend these if you are able. This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions, explore key parts of the poem you might have misunderstood and develop your interpretations.

READING- You should be aiming for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes of reading per day. Mrs Sherry has uploaded a number of ways that you can access texts if you are running low at home.

Reading is one of the most important things you can do whilst you are at home. It will:

  1. Help you to relax and reduce anxiety
  2. Widen your vocabulary
  3. Help with the accuracy of your writing
  4. Broaden your imagination
  5. Keep you entertained!

Remember, you are going to be tested next year on your knowledge of A Christmas Carol! This is a perfect opportunity to re-read the text!
