Please encourage your child to see Mrs Moles to sign up for a lunchtime or after school revision session and to purchase a revision guide/workbook.

You will be aware that your child is currently preparing for their GCSE English Literature controlled assessment during timetabled English lesson time. This is an important part of the qualification and worth a significant 25%. As a controlled assessment, it cannot be re-taken. The focus of the task is upon Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' and a selection of poetry on the theme of 'Conflict'.

The actual assessment itself will take place across the weeks commencing 26th January and the 2nd February, although individual class teachers will let their students know of the exact date.

It would be fantastic if you could ask your child about the assessment and encourage them to do their best. GCSE English Literature is a challenging subject with a strong focus on skills of insight and analysis; it is incredibly well respected by colleges and universities as a solid intellectual subject.
