This class will help you develop your English skills by reading and writing short fiction and non-fiction stories. Your understanding of each will be checked. Being able to understand what is happening in a story is a key skill required in the SATs. In this class, you will read the provided texts and then we will read through them together. We will discuss what actually happened which will build your inference skills. You will learn about sentence structure (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives,...
Students will learn how to extract the relevant information required to answer set questions about a story or text. With different texts each week, over time, they will learn how to deduce what is meant when the story uses inference, be able to identify the key characters, find phrases or words that tell them about something particular in the story, give synonyms for certain words, be able to describe a character, identify alliteration, think critically by learning how to reason why a character does what he/she/it does, give ideas of what may have happened previously or after the story takes place, find connectives, explain why the text is organised in the way it is, explain why some sentences are shorter than others, find powerful verbs, find amazing adjectives, deduce what words mean by using the text that surrounds those words, and describe what kind of story they are reading - is it a traditional tale, a fantasy story, some other kind of fiction, or non-fiction?
My short stories and texts have been used within schools for SAT revision throughout the UK for the past three years. As such, I have an innate understanding and ability to teach the skills required for your child to pass their SATs.
Students will be asked to complete any questions that may not have been completed in writing before the end of class and should submit them to me as soon as possible after the end of class.
