BEAL’S FUTURE OLYMPIAN….
Ilyas Hussain in Year 10 of Beal High School recently represented Great Britain in the Taekwondo World Championships, held in Vancouver. He is a potential Olympian of the future and Beal is proud to support him.
Ilyas’s father had this to say:
“Ilyas and I had an amazing time in Vancouver. Ilyas was at the championships for the 5 days and had little time for sight-seeing.
He was fighting on the first day. His opponent was from Spain; a much older and taller guy. Ilyas fought well and it was a very close match going into the final round. Unfortunately, Ilyas conceded a point and lost by the narrowest of margins. His coach and senior management were happy with his performance as he was one of the smallest boys there. He had the skill set but when you are fighting 17 year olds, who are like fully grown men, it is a massive mission.
In the new English GCSE, 50% of the marks come from writing;
the best way to get better at writing is by
GETTING THE GRADE IN ENGLISH
We, therefore, suggest the following revision tasks:
- Read one literary short story per week.
- Read at least one ‘Opinion’ article from a newspaper each week
- Each week, re-read an extract from one of the texts you have studied:
E.g. A Christmas Carol, ‘An Inspector Calls’, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, the Poetry Anthology.
If you want more information on how to revise, go onto the Beal High School Moodle page and look for the KS4 En room.
