Vocabulary - study of 10 words specifically related to our overarching topic for the week. This will also be a part of homework
Thinking Skills - this will incorporate all types of TS question types, both verbal and numerical
Critical Reading - both fiction and non-fiction. Non-fiction may include analysis of interesting news stories, and fiction will most likely be related to a writing topic for the day. Mr Vickers has a vast repertoire of interesting texts to share with students
Writing - a 30 minute writing task will be completed as part of the class. This will be marked by me and returned to the student. Part of the students' homework each week will be rewriting the marked piece so as to eliminate errors and take on feedback.  Each student then gets to focus on what they need to improve, ascending a hierarchy. At the most basic level, students will work on fixing spelling and grammatical issues. At higher levels, the minutiae of writing will be scrutinised and hopefully enhanced.
Learning through games -  a number of 'game' type activities will be employed within the classes to help motivate students. 
Homework - As well as the rewriting task, other homework will link directly to the material covered in class
