Year 9 - English


Each unit of work that students undertake involves the core English learning standards of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. Students read and create a range of multi-modal texts consistent with the unit they are studying.

In addition to the units of work, students also complete a Writing Folio showcasing several writing styles, including:

  • Reports
  • Diary entries
  • Opinion pieces
  • Persuasive Pieces
  • Poetry
  • Essays
  • Creative writing

Each semester the students analyse a literary text that explores themes and issues related to their own lives.  The students create written and oral responses to the text.



Students also need a display folio for their written pieces, along with pens and pencils.

Novels for the literary text study are available for the students to borrow from the College library.
