The boys will follow a varied and enjoyable range of English lessons, well preparing them for Key Stage Two examinations. They will look at a variety of genres, examining both fiction and non-fiction writing and producing a wide range of work.
Poetry and story writing are features and the boys will be stimulated into producing what is hoped will be good quality work. The boys will also be involved in drama – see our separate drama section for more details of our school productions.
Techniques are taught which develop the understanding and interpretation of text (comprehension). This is a key skill, which is important across the whole curriculum. Coupled with this, the boys are encouraged to read extensively, developing their vocabulary, which in turn assists them in their creative writing.
Our Key Stage 2 results over the past years have been excellent. The work completed in the Junior School will certainly help them when they move on to the Senior School and will stand them in good stead for future life.
