You will develop competence and confidence in creating written, oral and multimodal texts, with a particular focus on how language persuades the audience. Writing will focus on completing a range of sustained texts and will include the creation of essays, imaginative stories and comparative responses. Reading will include responding to contemporary and classical narratives and plays, as well as media and electronic texts.
