Principles of curriculum design in MFL : how to plan a scheme of work for KS3 and KS4

This course will be online.

The revised GCSE MFL subject content proposes that students learn and can readily use key vocabulary, grammar and phonics so that they can understand and produce meaning, writing with increasing accuracy and speaking with increasing fluency.

A KS3 and KS4 curriculum planned to support preparation for GCSE specifications ‘will ensure systematic, well-sequenced coverage of the specification’s linguistic content, avoiding overloading pupils at any given point, and with ample opportunities for practising the content taught at each stage receptively and productively, in the oral and written modalities, with an approximately equal emphasis on each.’

In light of these proposals, this session sets out the main principles for designing a successful curriculum for Modern Languages at Key Stage 3 and 4.
