The Department We are a large department made up of 9 teachers. K.firstname.lastname@example.org (teachers name)@belvederebritishschool.com
We believe: – that English is relevant and important to students’ lives as a functional skill, for personal growth and to be enjoyed for lifelong learning – in inclusivity and that every child is capable of making good progress – that assessment directs and informs progress – in reflecting on our own practice – in the ability of our subject to make a difference to children’s lives We aim to: – enthuse and inspire through creative teaching and a positive learning culture – develop students’ confidence and encourage them to take risks through positive relationships and developing speaking and listening skills – extend thinking beyond their own experience – develop students’ personal learning skills to enable independent work, group work etc. – give students an appreciation of literature – encourage enjoyment of English
Our expectations All students will be prepared for class – each lesson they will have a pen, their communication book and a reading book from either home or the school library Students will complete homework to a good standard - Reading homework should be logged A working partnership with support from you Students to work hard to achieve their best
