A new key stage 2 scheme of work for French is now available from QCA. It consists of 12 units and a teacher’s guide and suggests strategies to meet the objectives of the Key Stage 2 Framework for Languages (DfES, 2005).
It can be downloaded from http://www.qca.org.uk/13505_18671.html
German and Spanish schemes will be published in late summer 2007.
Reports on Pupils’ views on language learning, on Maximising take-up of languages at key stage 4, on Teaching Community Languages and on The use of ICT for teaching and learning languages can be downloaded from http://www.qca.org.uk/13501.html -click on 'Projects and publications'.
The DfES recently published the Key stage 2 framework for languages to support the entitlement of every child aged 7 to 11 to learn a new language. This QCA guidance shows the links between this framework and the learning objectives of the QCA scheme of work for key stage 2 French. The guidance can be downloaded from this page.
In April 2005, the QCA MFL team produced and distributed to LEAs a booklet that brings together much of the information to be found on these MFL subject pages and elsewhere on the QCA website. This booklet can be downloaded from http://www.qca.org.uk/13501.html .
The next update will be published on the MFL subject pages in March 2006.
