Assessing Primary Languages interprets the requirements of the KS2 Programmes of Study for foreign languages.
The most effective way of ensuring progress among your KS2 pupils in Foreign Languages is by breaking the Programmes of Study into achievable, understandable objectives, creating a unified tracking approach which can then be used by any KS2 teacher to plan their lessons.
How do you translate the vague curriculum requirements such as speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures into a four year scheme of work?
And then, how do you record progress when the national curriculum does not provide much guidance?
It is with these questions in mind that we have developed Assessing Primary Languages – a resource that supports both specialist and non-specialist teachers of primary languages to interpret the requirements of the KS2 Programme of Study, and measure pupils’ progress.
Classroom teachers and subject leaders will find this resource invaluable, not least because the tried and tested framework is a rigorous tool which can be used for planning, but also because teachers are given help with deciding what substantial progress actually looks like.
The framework is clearly laid out and breaks the Programme of Study into smaller areas which are then cross-referenced across four stages, so the task of assessing all aspects of the Programme of Study has never been easier.
Assessing Primary Languages also contains a large number of creative and adaptable ready-to-use activities, including those which can be used to support you with measuring your pupils’ progress for each area and at each stage.
