Year 7 English

Year 7 English covers the learning areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. It builds on the students' skills and requires them to use these skills in a wide range of contexts and engage with a range of texts.      

                                                      

We begin the year with a series of standardised tests that form the basis of our planning for the year. Students will be tested again during the mid-year and end of year exams as well as completing assignments and class assessments to gauge their progress throughout the year.                     

The outline below is an example of a year plan. Courses are planned at the beginning of the school year, once students' abilities, interests and goals are established.
