English

English at Havant Academy is centred around the core skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. These are fundamental to every topic in both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.  Building on the skills learned at Key Stage 2, pupils develop analytical skills through the use of quotation, notation, location and retrieval of evidence in reading. They then comment on language use and structure. In writing pupils craft formal essays, adapt writing to purpose and let their imagination flow in various styles to develop their written skills. At Key Stage 4 we follow the Eduqas qualification where pupils study towards two GCSEs; in English Language and English Literature.  Texts studied include works by Shakespeare, Dickens, Priestley, Dahl, Morpurgo and many others. Across both Key Stages pupils will have the opportunity to study novels, plays, poetry, drama, non-fiction and other formats to really establish a breadth of knowledge in this rich curriculum that we offer at Havant Academy.
