English Resources for Schools
Why is Learning English in School Important?
Learning English is vitally important for all school pupils, from early years, to A level and beyond. English is spoken in many countries all over the world, making it a brilliant language to learn. Good grammar and punctuation skills are also imperative for both schoolwork and future careers. Learning the correct use of capital letters, punctuation and how to structure sentences, will ensure written proficiency. This is a valuable skill for use in various aspects of daily life, such as writing letters, emails and homework. Competency in written and spoken English will be looked upon favorably by employers and provide opportunities for both professional and personal growth and development.
Why Should English Posters be Displayed in the Classroom?
English posters displayed in the classroom will help to brighten the learning area and engage pupils with exam-relevant content. With eye-catching designs, informative content and bright colours, English posters can help to stimulate learning and increase the visual attractiveness of any school environment. Posters that are laminated also mean that students can write on them and express their ideas, whilst still being able to reuse them in the future. English posters are an ideal way to catch students' attention and sustain their interest and motivation for a specific subject. Posters will help learners to absorb material faster through bright colours and clever designs, which promote visual engagement. Not only do school posters make a classroom more inviting and colourful for pupils and visitors alike, they display applicable and relevant content. Especially regarding younger children, English posters displayed in the classroom can help to promote early development and literacy skills. The sooner pupils learn to read and write independently, the more chance they have of progressing throughout school and succeeding in their tests, exams and further education.
How can English Posters be Used in the Classroom?
English posters can be used as helpful teaching aids that will supplement content taught in the classroom. English posters can help children to understand a wide variety of topics, from capital letters, adjectives and standard English, to prepositions, common suffixes and conjunctions. Posters can be used by pupils as visual aids to refresh their existing knowledge of certain subjects. Cognitive science supports the notion that information displayed in a visually pleasing and attractive way can encourage students' learning. English posters can be used in the classroom alongside content taught by the teacher, to encourage pupils' understanding of key English topics. Attractive displays can also be used to introduce a new teaching topic or to complement ongoing work. For example, if the topic that children are learning about is sentence-related, a ' Sentence Rules' or 'Types of Sentences' poster could be utilised effectively. This will help to set the scene for what the class will be studying that specific day and generate engagement prior to the lesson itself.
Why Should the Use of English Revision Guides be Encouraged?
English revision guides can help pupils to understand topics taught in class in their own time and on their own terms. Learning in a classroom, especially after a day of lessons, may cause children to experience a drop in concentration levels or to become distracted by their peers. However, when revising at home with an English revision guide, children can fully focus on the topics that they may have had difficulty understanding during the lesson. Revision guides that include topics relevant to the most up-to-date curriculum will also be a significant help to pupils when it comes to studying for their exams, whether that be end-of-year tests in primary school, or GCSE's and A levels in secondary school. Attempting to retain all the key information needed for an English exam can sometimes be overwhelming, but a handy revision guide will help to break down the content that children need to know and in turn, ensure they feel confident and prepared when their exams eventually come around.
What are the Most Effective Ways to Use an English Revision Guide?
English revision guides can be used effectively as classroom aids, homework helpers or revision reminders. In the classroom, pupils can use revision guides to supplement learning by being able to refer to the useful content contained within the book. English revision guides are also effectively used alongside homework, especially if a student is struggling with the basics of a specific topic. Revision reminders are another brilliant use of an English revision guides and can be used as revision reminders. Sometimes, even the thought of revising can be overwhelming, especially for a subject like English, where a pupil may have masses of worksheets, textbooks and other content to look through. In contrast, succinct English revision guides can guarantee that students will experience a new lease of motivation regarding their revision, as one simple book will not seem as text-heavy or intimidating as several different literatures. Ultimately, English revision guides will be most effective in whichever way a pupil believes they will benefit the greatest: this could perhaps include silent reading, re-writing or reading aloud.
