    My department is looking at textbooks for KS3 French. We are with the CCEA examination board so if there is anyone in NI in particular who can give me a recommendation, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

    It's a sad state of affairs when you are choosing your KS3 resources based on which board's exams they will take at the end of KS4. Very sad.

    Not sad at all - just being professional and planning in advance, so as to maximize your students' chances of success in crucial examinations.

    Whilst I appreciate that schools and teachers are so judged by results that this is a natural progression in British education, the fact that teaching to the test is now sooo ingrained that it starts in KS3 (or earlier) for an end of KS4 exam - I'm afraid that I do find that very very sad.

    We really have lost our way as a nation.

    As a NQT, I started this thread looking for help and support from more experienced teachers. It's a sad state of affairs when I'm immediately criticised. Very sad.

    The criticism wasn't meant to be personal, I apologize. It was meant to be a shot at the current state of affairs.
