Options post 16

Grade boundary challenges
  • Why is attaining the most C grades ( and above)
    necessary?
  • How achieving a C grade in 5 subjects became
    harder last year, including any exams sat in Year
    10
  • These was highlighted for English in the media
    but was a factor in many subjects, e.g. Geography
    boundary for a C had varied but on average was
    54. This rose to 60 and is most likely to
    remain around this level.
  • Aiming to scrape a C grade is not an option!

  • Parental support is eight times more important

    that parental involvement in a childs education
    can mean the difference between an A and an
    also-ran at GCSE

    success more than your sons and daughters.

ENGLISH on INFORMATION EVENING
31
English x 2
  • English Language is English. Along with maths,
    this is the one that matters more than any other
    subject.
  • English Literature needs to be taken seriously
    because it can easily be one of your 5 GCSEs.
  • But its not quite as important as English
    Language and maths.

32
THE GOOD NEWS IS THIS
  • In English Language there is nothing to revise.

33
The bad news is this
  • In English Language, there is nothing to revise.

34
RESPONSIBILITY and URGENCY IN LESSONS
  • Daniela Ferreira
  • Zak Ollington

35
What can I do to help my son/daughter?
  • Later, Ill gave you a special, DIY pack

36
WRITING
  • Students to do a 25 minute writing task 2-3 times
    per week.
  • Follow the guidelines that we will be working on
    in class
  • And which are listed in the pack
  • PARENTS TO EVALUATE IT

37
PARENTS MANY of the TARGETS dont REQUIRE
SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE
  • 1. Evidence that they have tried to generate a
    list of possible topics
  • 2. Evidence that they have tried to turn this
    list into a clear plan with at least 3 main
    topics
  • 3. That they written a brief introduction and a
    brief conclusion
  • 4. The first sentence of each main paragraph /
    section should indicate clearly what that
    paragraph will be about (topic sentence)

38
READING find an article (newspaper or internet)
  •  In the headline, the word suggests .
  • The introduction is engaging. In the phrase
    ., the word suggests ..
  • Another interesting use of language is where it
    says .., because the word .. suggests
    .
  • In the picture, one detail I can pick out is
    .. and this links to the article because
    ..
  •  

39
In short
  • We will be giving the students a clear consistent
    method to follow for each task.
  • We will be practising these processes in lessons.
  • You can help them to practise at home.
  • BUT IF THE STUDENT IS TRULY MOTIVATED FROM
    WITHIN, EVERYTHING BECOMES SO MUCH EASIER.
