The MFL department offers French and German at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Lessons are delivered using a wide range of teaching methods including collaborative structures but also role plays, mimes, games and electronically produced materials. The target language is used to communicate in the classroom by both teachers and students alike.
Key Stage 3
The programme of study at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the AQA GCSE course in Key Stage 4. In Year 7 students follow a context based curriculum which enables them to manipulate the language in a more authentic way. There is a strong emphasis on vocabulary and communication. Confidence in manipulating the language is key to success in the new GCSE, so in Year 8 students focus on key grammatical points around fun themes.
