Welcome to your new Year 7 class.
The first year at secondary school can be daunting – and this site is here to help. You can think of it as a ‘back-up’ of all the things you are expected to remember and do – a place of refuge for both you and your families. Year 7 English is a fascinating, academically challenging and mature programme of learning.
Choosing The Individual and Society as your English programme for Year 7 will allow you a chance to expand on your personal voice. The London Nautical School draws students from all over London who represent an extraordinary range of ethnicities and cultures. In English this year you will be given a number of opportunities to show us who you are, and to learn more about the powerful relationships between language, literature and our society.
This site will be an important resource hub for you as the year progresses and will contain everything from details of homework to examples and videos of your own good work. I recommend that you subscribe to the site so that every update is delivered to your email inbox – and that you encourage your parents to do the same as, after all, they are your greatest supporters and the more informed they are, the better they can help!
Your success this year will be determined by the small things. Determination and grit are what is called for – making progress in small increments, day by day, is the only real way to ensure your own achievement. I will be here with you, every step of the way.
Welcome to my class, it’s going to be a great year!
