Reading Course Term 5: Poetry and Non-fiction

As per the National Curriculum, we begin to examine poetry for meaning and writer’s choices laying the groundwork for more advanced study in later years. We discuss poetic techniques, structural choices and form along with why poetry can be so powerful as a kind of writing. We also study non-fiction texts in this term, exploring a range of articles, letters and diary entries for meaning, structure and language use.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of the tutor reading aloud, discussions about the novel and written work
  • Reading requirements – Students do not need to read the texts before the lessons. Texts will be proided during tutorials.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
