Year 11 Learning

In year 11, students get the chance to showcase their reading, writing and speaking skills. The year begins with the study of Macbeth, followed by consolidation of key texts from year 10 to ensure they are confident in remembering and writing about those texts. Students will build on their knowledge of 19th Century texts through the analysis of unseen extracts; they’ll complete their study of poems from the anthology and will finally have a chance to demonstrate their expertise in the lead up to their final exams. As with year 10, talk is celebrated- students will continue to develop their oracy skills through a range of exploratory and presentational talk.
