NCELP is pleased to share with you our fully-resourced Key Stage 3 Schemes of Work (SOW). The Key Stage 3 SOWs outline the different aspects of language knowledge and practice planned for the Year 7, 8 and 9 Schemes of Work. NCELP Schemes of Work are proposed as examples of how language knowledge and practice can be sequenced and re-visited systematically to support progression in the early stages of language development within a low exposure foreign language setting.
The NCELP SOW are in line with: (a) the Review of MFL Pedagogy, a report published by the Teaching Schools Council, which drew on research into foreign language learning and teaching and on the knowledge and experience of a wide range of experienced practitioners; (b) Ofsted’s current aspirations for curriculum intent, implementation, and impact; and c) preparing a solid foundation for the new GCSE content and examinations (first teaching September 2024), which builds on the core grammar and vocabulary outlined in the programmes of study for Key Stages 2 and 3.
All of the documents below are freely available on the NCELP Resource Portal.
