8S English Christmas Holiday work 2014

 8S pupils should complete the book review of scholarship reading book and read at least one more scholarship book. They should also cover the same ground as the CE groups as follows:

 

They should work on basic skills and revise literary terms and their effects thoroughly, making sure that all technical terms are covered. They must also revise the structure of an argument essay. GCSE Bitesize, KS3 Bitesize, Skillwise (another BBC resource), Spellzone and English Biz will help. They should all have copies of a literary terms revision sheet, Top Tips, a technical terms sheet and a rhetoric device quick guide. If not, click where indicated for replacements. Please note you must be logged in to access any downloads. There are links to Spellzone and English Biz on the Home Page of the VLE lower down on the left hand side.  Pupils are also invited to submit a creative story or poem for consideration for the school magazine.

Year 7 English Revision Christmas 2014

Year 7 need to prepare for two English exams, both of which will test comprehension and writing skills. In preparation, they must review the persuasive writing techniques covered this term and make sure that they are familiar with literary terms. They can use the sheets already issued but there are replacements on the click buttons below. They can use the BBC KS 3 Bitesize website, Skill wise and English Biz as well for this and also for basic skills revision. Each pupil will be aware of their own targets and should choose tasks that suit them.Time on Spellzone would be useful for those who need this practice. Reading every day is also vital. I have included a creative writing tips sheet as well and it would be lovely if some creative work was submitted for consideration for the school magazine.

Year 6 English Revision for January 2015 Exams

Year 6 will have two exams in January. Paper One will test comprehension. Paper Two will test writing skills. To prepare, pupils should read as much as possible (use Bug Club as well as real books - the e-books have comprehension questions included in each text) and also try to tackle some of their own targets with regard to basis skills. So for spelling, use Spellzone and Bug Club (there are punctuation tasks here too) BBC KS2 Bitesize will also help. Both groups have covered aspects of persuasive and non-fiction writing this term (speech writing, reports and leaflets)  and these skills should also be revisited. Again, the BBC KS2 website can help. I have included a download of Creative Writing Tips to this message along with various other links. Pupils might also like to write a story of their choice for consideration for the school magazine later in the year.
