Welcome to English
English is an integral discipline that opens the world to us. It allows us to access learning across the curriculum, to coherently express one’s thoughts and opinions and to understand the subtleties of language.
In English at Sandwick Junior High we spend S1 – S3 exploring different types of texts and genres: novels, plays, poetry, newspapers and websites. We develop skills in Reading and Writing to both analyse and create these texts, gradually becoming more independent as we progress through the school. We also develop skills in Talking and Listening allowing our pupils to gain confidence in expressing opinions to others, both individually and in the form of group discussion.
In S4 we put these skills to practice in our preparation for SQA exams.
- S4 Study class is every Monday until 5pm
