Year 7 French Scheme of Work (full year)
NCELP Schemes of Work are proposed as examples of how language knowledge and practice can be sequenced and re-visited systematically to support progression in the early stages of language development within a low exposure foreign language setting. The principles and processes that informed the SOW are described in this Rationale, Scope, and Key Principles document: https://resources.ncelp.org/concern/resources/8g84mm27v?locale=en . Further insights are available in the Scheme of Work Development presentation: https://resources.ncelp.org/concern/resources/qj72p737c?locale=en .
This detailed scheme of work for Year 7 French has been trialled in several NCELP schools. Please note that homework sheets and their audio files are currently being updated and will be ready by mid-September 2020.
NCELP is fully resourcing its SOW. The easiest way to locate resources for French is in its SOW collection: https://resources.ncelp.org/collections/t148fh31r?locale=en . Within each folder, select Download All (bottom left) to save all resources.
We also provide a SOW overview for the whole of Y7: https://resources.ncelp.org/concern/resources/fx719m683?locale=en .
The NCELP SOW are in line with: (a) the Review of MFL Pedagogy, a report published by the Teaching Schools Council, which drew on research into foreign language learning and teaching and on the knowledge and experience of a wide range of experienced practitioners; (b) Ofsted’s current aspirations for curriculum intent, implementation, and impact; and c) preparing a solid foundation for GCSE content and examinations, which builds on the core grammar and vocabulary outlined in the programmes of study for Key Stages 2 and 3.
