Overview of the Year for French and Spanish at Key Stage 3

Throughout Key Stage 3, we aim to build on the language skills that students have learnt throughout Key Stage 2. We develop students listening, speaking, reading and writing skills together actively promoting cultural awareness. We utilise a wide variety of authentic resources, including video and podcasts, together with Kerboodle online resources to support student learning.

Overview of the Year for Modern Foreign Languages at Key Stage 4.

At Key Stage 4, we continue to build on students’ skills from Key Stage 3. Students in Year 10 and Year 11 complete either AQA GCSE Spanish (4695) or AQA GCSE German (4665). The course requires students to complete two controlled writing assessments (30%) and two controlled speaking assessments (30%). The controlled assessments are staggered throughout the course so students have the opportunity to build upon their listening and reading skills. At the end of the course, students take a listening (20%) and a reading (20%) examination. Each skill is tiered at foundation or higher level. Students in Y9 complete either AQA GCSE Spanish (8698) or AQA GCSE French (8658). This new GCSE specification is assessed by final exams at the end of Year 10, which test students on the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Enrichment opportunities in Modern Foreign Languages.

We offer a range of enrichment opportunities including foreign trips. We run annual education visits to France and Spain for all year groups so that students have a first-hand opportunity to immerse themselves in the language and the culture. We also offer a variety of enrichment clubs afterschool including pen-pal exchange, Spanish and German clubs. In May 2017 the Academy is taking a group of students to visit Barcelona.
