I have been busy putting together revision resources for year 11 to aid their independent study. I have created a timetable for each week up to the examinations. There is a separate timetable for Language and one for literature. The resources are also included and include a full paper 1 and paper 2 for English language which you have not used before. Happy revising!
I’m really sorry that I am unable to deliver the presentation on how to revise for English, however we must follow advice from experts regarding the currently health concerns. Please do find the ppt attached here though, which you can access and get some helpful ideas on how to support your children in their revision.
You have been working on paper 1 WTM language and are moving on to paper 2 in your lessons now. If you missed any lessons or need to go over anything, find all of the resources and ppts here.
We are excited to be welcoming back Jess Green to Lutterworth College. Year 7 and 8 have the opportunity to take part in a poetry workshop with her on World Book day next Friday. Please click on the link to register interest and find out more.

In your lessons you have gone through paper 2. You will have had the opportunity to decode questions, identify your targets and start to complete some DIRT. If you want to spend some more time on your paper 2 skills or take another look at the example answers, then please download the ppt here.
In your lessons you have gone through each paper in detail. You should have identified your WWW and your EBI. Your teacher has also identified key skills you need to work on. Here on the PowerPoint you can see example answers of some of the questions. You can also see what the feedback was to all students. Spend some time re reading the areas which need improvement.
Year 11 had their results today. This is the first time they have taken both papers to know what their overall achievement in all of these areas is. In lessons they have reflected on these papers and completed a visual representation of their progress. This allows students to see immediately where their areas for development are across the 5 questions on each paper. All students have been given individualised targets on 2 reading question and the writing questions on both papers.
Moving on, students know exactly what they need to do to improve their skills. This will in turn, improve their grades. Students have identified their next steps and now need to take ownership of these and start to improve those skills.
