Welcome to the English Faculty – how do you do?
We’re Misses Swain, Winkle, Corbett and Mrs Q…
The best-dressed Faculty, of that there’s no doubt!
Let us share with you what English is all about:
Quote analysis, creative writing and don’t forget SPAG,
“Go into more detail!” you will hear us nag.
We’ll improve your vocabulary and teach you to infer
Whilst building your confidence, year upon year.
Language, structure, writers’ purpose as well,
Evaluate critically – you’re opinions, do tell!
In English there’s no definite answer, wrong or right;
Just say what you think, your ideas you must write.
As teachers we’ll give you the skills that you need,
To go far in life, to be the best, to succeed.
We’ll pass some responsibility for this on to you –
Group work, peer assessment, you’ll know what to do:
Two stars and a wish; then amend in green pen,
“But Miss, I’ve checked it once.” “Well check it again!”
With a good grade in English, there’s nowhere you can’t go,
Set your sights way up high and we’ll help make it so…
