In first year, pupils study a range of topics which ensure that they are practising the skill areas of Reading, Listening and Talking and Writing. The pupils are taught grammar but through the main skill areas. Pupils are encouraged to participate fully in lessons through group work, projects and interactive presentations.
The department subscribes to the Linguascope website which the pupils can access at home with the username and password which they will be given in school. There are many useful interactive exercises which will enhance the work done in school.
Topics in first year include the following:
Pupils will be expected to:
• Revise vocabulary regularly
• Occasionally complete some project work
• Finish work started in class
• Do reading or writing tasks
