By encouraging them to do the following: To always stay focussed in class To get out their comfort zone and just have a go at speaking the language nobody learns to swim by sitting on the side of the pool! To complete their home learning on time and with a desire to do the best work they possibly can ( from this week all students should have a weekly writing or reading exercise to complete). To experiment with finding the best strategies for learning vocab To try and meet the target vocab score each week To use the Quizlet online resource weekly tests have been added for students to practice with online games and pronunciation practice (all students have the login details). To use Linguascope basic but essential vocab for GCSE practice pronunciation and games to practice (all students have the login details). The Importance of Vocabulary Learning Which students did the best in this years reading and listening exams? a) Those with a target grade of c (new grade 4) and above b) Those who consistently achieved the target score in their vocab tests (some of whom had a target grade of d (new grade 3) or below) Is just doing a quick ten minutes the night before enough revision,

even if you consistently achieve the target grade a) Yes, because you have passed the test. b) No, because little and often is a more effective way of retaining the vocabulary Should you be looking and revising old vocabulary lists a) No! b) Yes!. This is probably the number one mistake students make. They concentrate on learning new material, and forget to review the older one. Promoting vocab learning All students have a weekly vocab test, and are set a weekly target score (this is differentiated according to the level of the group). Students must treat this seriously as a Home Learning task. Students who do not achieve their target score are asked to complete a V1a retest during a lunchtime. Students who do not achieve their target score in the V1 retest must attend a compulsory lunchtime strategy workshop. The aim of this support session is to support individual students to find their own individual style of learning. Encountering and learning new vocabulary is an integral part of each lesson. Students keep a vocab book, and review vocabulary regularly through a range of activities. We need you to promote vocab learning at home just like you did with English spellings at Primary school! It is one of the easiest and most effective ways you can support your child with GCSE French and Spanish. This is your chance to keep in touch with your childs progress and to discuss their learning.
