Key Stage 4

Pre-colonial and post-colonial Africa

These lessons look at the context of pre-colonial and post-colonial Africa whilst allowing pupils to practice their creative writing and analysis of discursive writing. Critical thinking and independent learning is encouraged throughout.

Poetry by Black authors

Our first cycle of lessons on Alternative Curriculum is on poetry in celebration of Black History Month. The theme of identity will be explored and a range of poetic styles from different eras will be discussed. From the Harlem Renaissance to rap music the lessons will explore how to successfully analyse and annotate poems.
