Curriculum Overview

The Key Stage Three Languages curriculum has been devised to encourage students to want to travel, experience new cultures and believe that they can achieve in languages. We have incorporated opportunities to understand the similarities and differences between life in the United Kingdom and in the French and Spanish speaking world. In addition, we explore themes of Catholic Social Teaching through learning about social issues, which concern us all as global citizens. 

How will I be assessed?

In Languages, students are assessed in the following ways:

  • Fortnightly vocabulary testing
  • Fortnightly translation homework
  • Extended writing in class & in class speaking, listening or reading tasks
  • End of term reading and writing assessments
