Year 8 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 .
The Year 8 schemes of work outlines the vocabulary, grammar, and 'sounds of the language' that are planned for the year. Please note that this is a draft and is subject to change in the process of developing the resources to accompany it. We will upload updated SOW for each term after they have been taught in project schools that are providing us with feedback and quality assurance.
NCELP is fully resourcing its SOW. The resources are uploaded weekly, a few weeks ahead of teaching. 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 Y8: https://resources.ncelp.org/concern/resources/wm117p427?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.
