MFL Key Stage 3 Spanish

KS3 students (year 7, 8 and 9) follow schemes of learning based around the English National Curriculum framework. Activities that promote key literacy skills have been built into the schemes. Year 7 are initially taught in form groups and are then set after the first half term based on their KS2 levels and their understanding of work in this initial period.
