KS3 in 2016

KS3 – are you joining us in year 7 in September 2016?

In Year 7, students will either study French or Spanish. There will be 3 lessons of MFL per week.

Students will be assigned to one or the other. If you have a strong reason why your child should be studying a specific language (eg your child is already bilingual), please ensure you let Miss Nicholson know in writing before February half-term.

From year 8, students who are able in languages and those who are clearly motivated will be able to study German. Double linguists will have two lessons per week of each language.

What will you learn?

  • We will ensure that we lay a solid foundation, building up key skills to allow students to be successful at GCSE.
  • Students will develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in a fun way. We will explore various themes such as tourism, family and hobbies.
  • Each theme will be linked to cultural content: French or Spanish cartoon characters, landmarks, music, personalities, artists and special events for example.
