English

At Harris Academy Riverside the English curriculum takes students on a journey though a variety of carefully sequenced texts. Literary pieces from different time periods, cultures and of different forms and viewpoints will enable students to develop culturally, emotionally, socially and spiritually whilst exploring the wider context of their world and broadening cultural capital.

At the heart of our English curriculum is the progressive development of students’ competency in spoken and written communication; fundamentals skills to ensure success in future career paths and within society.

Our aim is to challenge and support students in cultivating their own styles of writing and to progress as critical thinkers. Our increasingly challenging range of text types, writers, poets and authors encourages students to develop a habit of reading for both information and for pleasure. In doing this, students will learn new vocabulary, understand the purpose, audience and context of writing and critically explore the conventions of these texts.

In writing, pupils are taught to create a purposeful and unique style that is both accurate and fluent and reflective of their increasing knowledge of grammar and vocabulary.

Here at Riverside, we encourage students to view and experience English as a subject that will enrich them both academically and culturally; a huge contribution towards an extremely successful future.
