Hi All, I work in a school with really small mixed ability classes, which is lovely. However, we do have the occasional entrant to, say, Y8 who hasn’t done the language in Y7. At present we just do our best to help the student catch up by giving attention in the extra small classes, but I was wondering if there were any tips from MFL leaders on how they cope with this. For instance, would you send a summer programme home, or put on extra tuition for the student in Y8 who hasn’t done French in Y7? Or do you just differentiate your lessons until the student catches up? Another possibility which struck me is that some schools might timetable language in sets, but this is administrative hassle, no doubt. Anyway! Grateful for replies as I have responsibility for students’ progress in MFL.
