Do you want to secure at least a Grade 5 in GCSE English Language for teacher-assessed grades? This session is based on the specific assignment: Compare the presentation of loss in ‘The Emigrée’ and ‘Poppies'. In this class students will get an overview of how to write comparatively about poems in the Power and Conflict Anthology as well as how to write critically about the poems. Students in Years 10 and 11 will benefit greatly from using this class for revision!
