Sequencing and progression of learning MFL
- Knowledge in MFL – Phonics, vocabulary and grammar
- Skills – ability to communicate effectively using that knowledge in the 4 “skill” areas – listening, speaking, reading, writing.
- This knowledge should be taught sequentially and explicitly so pupils can make link. Language should be taught in chunks so as not to overwhelm and pupils should have the opportunity to manipulate new language, ideally for genuine purposes, so to embed it.
- Skills should be taught together not as individual entities.
- Curriculum should develop from KS2 and continue into KS3/4 in accordance with the Middle School objectives and schemes of learning.
What we will learn?
Asking basic questions - how are you? What is your name? How old are you? When is your birthday?
Learning basic information - numbers, colours, activities
Be able to give opinions
Spanish is taught using with a basis in Phonics. The theory is that once the students learn all the phonetic Spanish sounds they will be able to read any word that is presented to them in the future!
