Teaching the sounds of the language: how and why for KS3 and KS4. Presentation at the Network for Learning, Bath Spa University, 25 May 2021

Session PowerPoints for the half day webinar on 'Teaching the sounds of the language: how and why for KS3 and KS4' hosted by the Network for Learning at Bath Spa University, Institute of Education on 25 May 2021.

Session summary:
The revised GCSE modern foreign languages (MFL) subject content considers sound- symbol correspondences as core literacy and sets out a list of the sound-symbol correspondences that represent key differences between the new language and English. Students are expected to learn these, to be able to read aloud and transcribe them.

What is the rationale for teaching the sound-writing relationship? How do we teach it effectively and engagingly? How can we integrate it with meaning and with culture? Many of us as teachers did not learn how to teach phonics as part of our training.

This session aims to equip teachers with the pedagogical knowledge, but also with ideas and resources, for phonics teaching in Modern Languages at Key Stage 3 and 4.

Presenters: Rachel Hawkes and Robert Woore, NCELP
