Every week there are films being shown across all channels that can support the study of English Literature and Language. Every week we will release HDHS LITFLIX recommendations which will consist of some details of films being shown weekly that can support the HDHS English curriculum. If it leads to reading any of the books, even better! We would also love students to send us film reviews of any the HDHS LITFLIX films. Film reviews can be sent to Mr Gallagher at email@example.comHDHS-LITFLIX-Week-2-April-2020.pdf – 131 KB

This is some guidance for parents and carers from the Bedrock team, who play an important part in supporting the literacy development of HDHS students:
Every year the HDHS English department has an Instagram page for Year 11 GCSE students to support their out of class revision, learning and memory training. The new Instagram page for our current Year 10s has been set up earlier than expected. Any student who has an Instagram account can follow the page. Year 10 students have been emailed with the relevant information and many are already following the page. There will be daily posts relating to the study of GCSE Language and Literature. Instagram is a visual and instant platform so the posts are aimed to be visual and instant and support memory. Every Friday on ‘Show My Homework’ a quiz will be set up linked to the Instagram posts. It is a way of assessing if the students have been learning and if the posts are supporting memory. Not all students have Instagram and that is fine. This is just something extra for those who want to avail of it.
