English

Students in year 7 will read and study a number of works of literature in year 7.

More details will follow but the first novel that students will study is ‘Boy’ by Roald Dahl.

This novel is a very popular novel which can be studied at primary school and in secondary school and is often used as a GCSE text later in a student’s career in some schools.

In order to get ahead, students would be advised to

1.       read the novel (and again if a student has already read it.)

2.       consider how the book makes  us feel; which parts are particularly likely to stir emotions or be remembered?

3.       ensure that he or she is familiar with the plot – what happened when?

4.       consider one or two of the most important characters; what are they like?

·         how does Roald Dahl paint a picture of the character? How much is described by the way they move, speak or act?

5.       consider one or two of the turning points in the story

·         how are they written? Why are they important?

 

More details will be added to this page so that parents are aware of the content for the year.
