S2 English

Students are almost finished producing their AVU which will be delivered when we return to school during Phase 3.  The materials are available on Edmodo and the website.  Many pupils have worked very hard on this and we are delighted with the results.

Next week we want to start some reading tasks and pupils should start thinking about a text they would want to read, this can be either fiction ( a book/short story) or could be a newspaper article or a non-fiction book such as a biography.

Pupils are also encouraged to read for enjoyment and watch both fims and TV programmes during this time, these are excellent for their ability to analyse and develop their ability to handle and engage with media texts.  Discussing these texts at home can be highly benenfifial, particulalry if you ask open ended questions such as why do you think the director did that/showed that or why did they use that camera angle or have the character say that or do that ?  S2 pupils have developed a fairly sophisticated knowledge of film techniques including camera angles. Encouraging pupils to justify their own ideas by referring to the text is excellent preparation for the years ahead.

Finally, “Jurassic Park” was on the television over the weekend, hopefully those who hadn’t finished the film in class got a chance to catch up with it !

S1 English

S1 are working on some grammar and punctuation tasks which should be fairly straightforward revisiion tasks.   These have been placed in a folder in Edmodo.  Pupils should send their work to their teacher via email or Edmodo.
