Britannica students in the secondary school have made a positive start to the year in their English lessons and we have been pleased to see the enthusiasm with which they have returned to school. The English department hopes that this year students can be pushed to read a wider range of challenging texts, and that reading for pleasure can become a daily habit in their lives. This will be achieved through a wide range of class readers and supplementary texts using reading APPs and In addition, our goal is for students to take more control of their own learning in English through the use of regular quizzing and retrieval practice.
