  • learn to analyse and identify writers' techniques in producing these texts while actively extending and consolidating their own skills in using the language
  • study fairy tales and myths to familiarise themselves with texts which have had seminal influence on all literary movements including Grimm, Anderson and Homer
  • study aspects of the Gothic and Romantic genres, including authors such as Shakespeare, Dickens, C.S. Lewis and R.L. Stevenson.
