Welcome to the English Department
Croeso i'r Adran Saesneg
English at Coedcae is about developing children’s literacy skills, and much more besides. The department believes in a mixture of traditional and innovative teaching methods, and our primary concern is to get the very best out of the children – a fact reflected in impressive results at both key stages.
At both key stages children are placed in groups according to their ability. We focus on improving speaking and listening and written and reading skills, and on exploring a wide range of literary texts. At KS3, pupils follow a curriculum designed to prepare them for the rigors of GCSE.
ICT is used extensively throughout lessons and the department is very well resourced, using the latest computer technology to add variety to the curriculum and to develop independent learning.
At key stage 4, many pupils are entered for both English Language and Literature At GCSE level.
The department provides children with many opportunities to maximize potential. After-school catch-up sessions are available to all pupils, with members of the English team at hand to offer guidance and support.
We also offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and organise theatre visits where appropriate.
