The Communications Faculty at Bohunt School Wokingham consists of the English, Humanities (History, Geography and Personal, Social and Religious Education (PSRE)) and Modern Foreign Languages’ Teams. Teams work together in order to strengthen our students’ understanding of communication in the modern world.
Modern Foreign Languages
In KS3 students study French, and Mandarin. It is an expectation that almost all students will pursue a foreign language to GCSE, and in year 9 students will make this choice. There is also the option for some students to take two foreign language GCSEs.
In MFL, students will develop their language skills by studying topics such as lifestyle, leisure, holidays and the environment as well as developing their knowledge of other cultures.
Our aims are to inspire original and creative thinkers who can articulate complex ideas orally, on paper and on screen. In addition, we also strive to empower our students by providing them with the skills required to critically analyse and evaluate information which allows for informed judgements to be made.
At Key Stage 3, students in English explore and study a range of literature from different eras, including poetry, prose and non-fiction, as well as developing creative writing and analytical reading skills, and we aim to inspire a love of reading that reaches far beyond the classroom
At Bohunt School Wokingham, we offer History, Geography and Personal, Social and Religious Education (PSRE) as discrete subjects.
As a wise man once said, those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Geography gives students a broader understanding of the planet and its people. As well as academic knowledge and skills, Geography fosters tolerance and independent thinking, while preparing students to become active citizens in an ever-changing world.
PSRE examines different cultures and beliefs, developing evaluative skills as well as empathy and compassion. We help to broaden their horizons by looking at important concepts, and tackling some of life’s biggest questions and skills.
