hi all, I’m looking for some advice: SLT want to move MFL to a smaller area to accommodate Maths..... The area in question is significantly smaller than what we currently have (going from 4 big classrooms with 2 large cupboards for storage, a small office and an intervention/speaking room to 3 smaller classrooms with several small, ‘moveable’ cabinets for storage, no office and no intervention room) and two of the classrooms are separated by a partition wall..... In general, I don’t think this move is beneficial to MFL in any way and will create unnecessary stress and upheaval to the dept. We are losing a lot, all because maths department ‘want to be together’ and ‘there’s more of them’..... i feel like it’s a no win situation as SLT have clearly made up their minds already...needless to say, none of the MFL department are happy about it and i fear this situation will cause resentment in the long run..... Re: the partition wall : I think this will be a nightmare for MFL lessons, particularly when you have two different languages being taught at the same time and you’re doing listening activities. Also, we play a lot of music in our MFL lessons at KS3, this again, will be a concern with a partition wall, if one class is KS4/5 and the other KS3.... I’d like to know your thoughts please, if you have taught or are currently teaching MFL where you have a partition wall between two classrooms. Ideally pros and cons would be great as I’m struggling to find any pros at the moment!! Thanks for your help!
