Key Stage 3 German

All pupils complete a 5-week German taster course in Year 8 and can then choose German as their second language option in Yr 9 & 10.

Our aim at KS3 is to make language-learning fun & rewarding. There is a lot of emphasis on learning how to communicate on everyday topics and pupils often work in small groups in active learning activities to develop their ability in the four main skill areas of listening, reading, speaking & writing.

The course book used is Logo.
