In this session we consider why curricula that may have served schools well in the past are simply not ambitious enough now.

We explore the importance of a carefully sequenced curriculum that finds the ‘sweet spot’ where high-frequency vocabulary, phonics and grammar lead to confident, creative communication in culturally-rich contexts. The ideas and principles can be applied to any KS2 languages curriculum.

  • Date: Monday 3rd June
  • Time: 4.00-6.30

In this session we apply the principles we identified in Part 1 to the three knowledge strands (phonics, vocabulary, grammar) and consider the design implications of each.

We use this checklist to articulate a clear sequence of steps towards PMFL provision that generates a fascination for words and how language works, a wider curiosity about the peoples and cultures of the new language and the foundational knowledge to support confident communication.
