Yr 11 Parent Power: How to Help Your Child Succeed in the English Examinations

The English Faculty held an information evening for parents/carers of Yr 11 students on Wednesday 22nd February in the school hall. Ms Paisey and Miss Thompson guided parents/carers through the requirements of both the English Language and English Literature exams, offering advice on how to help Yr 11 students to prepare and revise for these exams in May and June 2017. The session was well-attended by many parents and carers - feedback from those who attended confirms that this was a useful session with many parents/carers commenting on the amount of work required to revise and being keen to help their sons/daughters at this crucial stage in their education. Many parents/carers were also pleased to have the opportunity to ask questions and clarify any issues.

Resources from this information session are available on H Drive. Please follow the folders: Yr 11 Revision>Examples of Past Papers with Student Answers>English. Please also be aware that the English Faculty has its own You Tube channel called Bradon English (containing revision clips on all the Relationship poems) as well as a Twitter page (which is regularly updated with information).

The after school English revision sessions for Yr 11 students start again on Weds 1st March, 2017, and will take place every week in the school hall from 3.40pm until 4.40pm. There will also be revision days (in the school holidays/on weekends) before the exams - more details on this to follow when dates are confirmed.
