What will students learn?
Students be introduced to the language in year 7 and will build on language and knowledge from year 7 throughout year 8 and 9. The students are exposed to high-frequency verb structures and interleaved vocabulary across a range of topics, including describing their own lives, likes and dislikes and those of others.
In KS3 students will study
- My family and I
- My school
- Where I live
- Free time and daily routine
- Food and healthy living
- Local area
- The environment and daily issues
- Relationships and future plans
How will students receive feedback?
At Paddington, all students will receive regular feedback from formative assessment tasks. Within the curriculum, specific tasks are allocated for feedback. This ensures all students gain regular feedback. Teachers will mark student work and provide targeted feedback that enables students to improve their work and make progress. To support student understanding, teachers plan high-quality re-teach time to prepare students for their feedback. Across each term, students will receive feedback from multiple tasks.
What resources can be used to support learning?
- There are curriculum books for each cycle of learning. These books contain all the knowledge that will be covered in lessons.
- The 100% books contain the knowledge organisers with core knowledge for each cycle. Students can use this to revise key information through self-quizzing.
- Students should use the website ‘memrise’ to practice vocabulary. Every week, a new course with vocabulary will be set on memrise.
- The United Learning curriculum website has resources and lessons that can be used to support and extend the content covered in lessons.
