Nicholas Avery presented to MFL trainee teachers at Liverpool Hope University on 12 November.
Summary of session:
As part of its efforts to improve language curriculum design and pedagogy, NCELP has been developing and resourcing Key Stage 3 schemes of work for Spanish, German and French. This session sets out specific components of language knowledge that are covered: phonics, vocabulary and grammar. It also presents some of the key features of the NCELP schemes, including systematic revisiting, carefully planned practice and balancing of content. We present a range of classroom resources to illustrate how these ideas may be enacted in practice.
