The English language curriculum at Bradford Academy is designed to give students a broad exposure to a varitey of communication, analytical and creative opportunities. Students at key stage three begin each year developing their creative writing skills by exploring a range of texts from the Grammar for writing schemes of work; these schemes are designed to teach grammar in a contextualised way – focusing on effects achieved, so students have a wider range of techniques with which to craft creative, effective texts
provide engaging and interactive lessons. The lessons are designed to help build grammatical knowledge and improve writing motivating students to write independently and they encourage students to reflect on their writing and understand how to improve with our range of activities.
Students then build on these skills throughout their time with us and extend and develop this knowledge at both Key Stage four and five.
