Year 7 English/History

Year 7 English/History

In Year 7 students undertake both English and History as a single combined subject. Students begin their Year 7 English studies by exploring the nature of storytelling around the world. Following this students learn about different forms of poetry and use this knowledge to create their own portfolio of original poetry. Students continue to immerse themselves in their English studies through a novel study of the text Stormbreaker, an exploration of how animation can be used to create interesting and engaging characters, and finally students complete their Year 7 English studies with an indepth exploration of the concept of 'survival'.

As part of the Year 7 History course, students begin by exploring what is history and why we explore our ancient past. Following this students undertake an in-depth study of the ancient civilisations of Egypt and China.
