All students of French are required to complete vocabulary learning as homework on a weekly basis. Each student has been issued with an A5 red exercise book to facilitate their independent language learning. Students will also have access to login information for www.linguascope.com, and they can get this information from their teacher.
Students in Years 9, 10 and 11 will also have access to GCSE online learning platforms to facilitate their vocabulary learning and grammar practice.
Students are required to learn the words set for each week of the half term and they are tested on these words at the beginning of each lesson. Scores are collected every three weeks. Those who score highly will receive post cards home and extra house points.
Students requiring extra support are invited to attend French vocab club on Tuesdays, at lunchtime, from 1.10pm in either F83 or F84.
This retrieval practice is designed to boost independence and to accelerate progress during lessons. Students will receive a new vocabulary booklet at the start of each half term.
