Poetic Creation (Being creative with poetry)

Poetic Creation (Being creative with poetry)

A poem that shows you can write a poem about your thoughts even if there isn't anything really to write about. It really shows how creative you can be when you want to be. Just allow the words to take control.

Reading Scheme for year 7 - Reading for Diamond

Reading Scheme for year 7 - Reading for Diamond

This reading scheme has been designed for year 7 students. This initiative is designed to encourage all students to engage with a wide range of genres and to develop a love of literature. The scheme of work includes 5 award booklets - Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Plus a letter to parents, templates for certificates and a suggested wall display. To complete the booklets, all students will need to read a set number of books. The books are their choice and can come from the school library, libraries near where they live or from their own bookshelves at home. Once the students have started the reading, they can set about to complete the tasks in the booklet. The aim of the Reading for Diamond scheme is to improve literacy and encourage a wider reading for pleasure. As well as developing a greater appreciation of different styles of writing, research has shown that students who read regularly perform better at GCSE’s, expose themselves to more diverse ideas, and improve their vocabulary, memory, concentration and creativity.

Talking about Literature

Talking about Literature

When our students need to talk about literature in a sophisticated way they need to employ the meta-language. Meta language is not jargon ( Well, not always.) It is language that lets us discuss language and literature objectively. This handout provides a selection of the most common terms needed to talk about literature.
