KS3 English

In Year 7 and Year 8, pupils are encouraged to develop their reading skills by studying more complex texts, including novels from our literary heritage such as ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’ and ‘Oliver Twist’. They practise writing stories and other formats such as letters, reviews, speeches, reports and blogs whilst also improving their spelling, punctuation and grammar. 

Speaking and Listening is also a focus and pupils practise delivering speeches and presentations, as well as participating in group discussion tasks, in order to ensure they are ready for the world of work by the time they leave Central Academy.
