These tools are aimed at primary and secondary practitioners and will help practitioners to gauge whether their proposals fulfil the criteria to provide a suitable L3 experience.
This is a suite of advice, frameworks and resources to support primary teachers to plan for depth and progression in modern language learning experiences. These resources were developed in conjunction with primary practitioners who deliver L2 and L3 experiences.
This resource is for primary practitioners engaged in delivering modern languages as an L2 or L3 experience. It should be used in conjunction with the Significant Aspects of Learning in modern languages. This resource supplements the advice in the modern languages Principles and Practice paper. It supports practitioners in evaluating effectively children’s progress in language learning.
These First Level Experiences and Outcomes will allow practitioners delivering languages as part of the Scottish Government 1+2 policy to benchmark learners’ progress in the skills of listening and talking, reading and writing.
Education Scotland have published a PowerPoint to support the reflection on and engagement with the newly updated Experiences and Outcomes, which can also be accessed through the link below.
This document provides guidance on the second additional language (L3) to be introduced by P5 by the latest, as a key element of the 1+2 policy. Learning a further language will give additional opportunities to build on children’s literacy skills so that they develop a greater understanding of how language works.
