7 English


Welcome to Year 7 English at Servite College. This year students will begin to explore how texts are deliberately constructed to convey specific messages to an audience. Students will view, read, create and perform a variety of written, spoken and visual texts that are designed to inform, persuade and entertain. Students will engage with a variety of texts for enjoyment. They listen to, read, view, interpret, evaluate and perform a range of spoken, written and multimodal texts in which the primary purpose is aesthetic, as well as texts designed to inform and persuade. An exciting year ahead… enjoy!
