Year 8

Key Stage 4

Year 7 Languages

French

In Year 7 some students study French. They follow the “ Métro ” course, which covers topics such as school, numbers, countries, the alphabet, my family, free time, my house and the town.

Lessons involve lots of student participation and students are rewarded with house points for good contributions in class.

During Key Stage 3, students will be assessed every six or seven weeks across a variety of skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will keep a clear record of achievement in their orange homework and assessment exercise books. They will be able to see from their assessment grids how they are progressing through the National Curriculum levels and what they need to do to reach the next level.

Students will be set a piece of homework once per week and it will either be a written or learning homework.
