Languages Faculty - Remote Learning
The year 7 - 9 lessons set for January and February in French, German and Spanish will all follow the same structure. Google Meet Live lessons will be used to input new vocabulary and grammar, students will then be given resources and links to practise these new skills independently and expected to produce a short piece of work at the end of each lesson. If students are unable to access the websites we have suggested, they can still learn the vocabulary and grammar at home. Making flashcards is a really simple way to practise, working with someone else to say the words aloud or using the ‘look/cover/write/check’ method also works!
We continue to follow our planned schemes of learning so that students do not fall behind whilst learning remotely. You can see our Key Stage 3 topics and grammar foci below:
Suggested websites to use for the following:
