Modern Foreign Languages Year 9

Aims:
In this last year of the KS3 curriculum we aim to consolidate pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the foreign language in order to give them access to the highest possible National Curriculum Level. This also provides them with a good base for success at GCSE.

Content:
In Year 9 we cover the remaining language topics required at KS3 which are of practical use when visiting the foreign country. We also consolidate and build on pupils’ knowledge of grammar to ensure confidence both in the understanding and production of more complex sentence structures.  At the end of KS3 pupils will also be able to understand and use a variety of tenses and more complex opinions.

Assessment:
Homework is given once a week and should take about 30/40 minutes to complete. Formal assessments are set in the middle of each term. The end-of-year examination assesses overall progress.

Extra Curricular:
German club and Japanese club take place one lunch time each week. In addition, there is a mentoring programme open to girls who are experiencing difficulties or who would like any extra help.
