Year 7 is a step up in difficulty. Students continue studying Plutarch's Lives as well as a Shakespearean play each term. They will continue with daily copywork, as well as studied dictation and grammar study. Every scheduled reading will still be narrated, either orally or in writing. Written narration should increase to more often than once a week, serving as further preparation for composition. Foreign language study continues as begun in previous years, alongside the study of Latin. A second contemporary language may be introduced this year.
If you are beginning with an older student, we have a list of "don't miss" books that should be read before beginning Year 7 here.
