Year 7 English

Year 7 classes study English across four core topics spread throughout the year. Students will explore a different unit each term. During Term 1 Year 7 students will learn about Autobiographical writing and story telling. They will study a range of texts and text types that will include Non-fiction texts; autobiographical writing, Poetry and Film, Shakespeare and the Language of Shakespeare as well as studying Visual Literacy and Picture Books. Our programs are based on the K-10 English Australian Curriculum, with an emphasis on strengthening students reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing and representing skills. Students will also sit their NAPLAN exam during Year 7, in which they will be assessed on literacy including reading, writing and language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation).
