English Department

Izatt 8 April 2014 (10)

The English Department would like to welcome you to the Izatt Building. We are very excited to have this new block with its own Reading Room, which is housed with a very wide range of literature, including fiction and non-fiction, and is in addition to our main Library.

We love reading at the school and the girls are very excited to be involved in various activities related to this pastime. Not only do we promote reading for academic reasons but for the simple pleasure of engaging in the world of the writer. We offer a range of reading material in the department and encourage all students to read as widely as possible; we have, therefore, stocked the Reading Room with various classic books, poetry, novels and short stories together with new fiction and non-fiction and this has been greeted with enthusiasm and excitement from all students.

IGS69

The teachers are also heavily involved in the enjoyment of reading and this is not just emanating from the English Department. There is a wide variety of literary texts that have a basis in particular subjects and, to inspire students further, we continue to provide book reviews by staff across the whole curriculum.

We believe, and research shows, that a lifelong enjoyment of reading enhances young people’s progress in many areas of learning and the sharing of personal reading by teachers is fundamental to success in all subjects. Teachers have been submitting book reviews on texts that are related to their subjects and for different age groups of students. These reviews are on display in the Library and on the Student Portal to encourage and inspire students to read other texts connected with the subjects they are currently studying.

Invicta46

Please enjoy the book reviews currently available from staff and students and we look forward to sharing more with you over the coming months. We would also like to share with you the reviews of the current books being read by our extra-curricular Reading Clubs across the age ranges. These reviews have been written by the students who attend and they will be updated on completion of the new selections for the sessions.
Please find links to current reading lists for all Key Stages to help you and your daughter choose a recommended book. As the list of potential good reads changes frequently it would not be possible to update the list continuously. Your daughter can either ask her English teacher or our Librarian for any suggestions about literature plus other teachers regarding subject specific texts.

We shall look forward to embracing the love of literature further at Invicta!
