The English Page
English in year 7 is split into 2 different sections.
With one teacher we study different books and plays and have watched a video of Shakespear's Merchant of Venice. As well as finding out about all the different characters we also get to see what it was like in Shakespear's time.
We also get to do lots of presentations and role plays and show them to the rest of the class.
With our other teacher we learn about all the different types of listening and English writing skills but we still get to do lots of the role plays that we enjoy!
