English provides an avenue to empowering students with effective communication skills that will enable them to effectively compete globally. Students should be able to see the links between literary works and connect the knowledge acquired.
English is a universal language, and at Harris Purley, we endeavour to enable students to develop a love and appreciation for the spoken and written word while being able to critically analyse and evaluate views and perspectives. The English curriculum will take students on a journey that will foster a lifelong need to articulate their viewpoints. Students will understand the grammatical choices made by writers and understand these rules to inform their own writing.
Our intent is to direct the curriculum with a clear focus on the simple to the more complex content from the commencement of year 7. Through the fiction and non-fiction genres that students are taught, students should be able to:
to explore and appreciate diversity
delve into a variety of issues and themes that are relevant to their lives and appreciate where we have come from
appreciate and understand the context in which texts are written and understand their place within the literary timeline
develop their grammatical skills by understanding the lexical, phonological, semantics and syntactical choices made by writers and how to effectively embed and apply these skills in their own writing
Ultimately, throughout each stage of their lives, students will use the skills garnered in English to move on to high levels of success.
