MFL Intervention / Action Plan for students

MFL Intervention / Action Plan for students

Tracking students and classes can be a laborious task. Also showing management the steps you have taken to help students who are below their expected targets can be difficult as often times we can forget the phone class we have made, they targeted questions we have asked in lessons etc. In our department we use these two forms: RED Action Plan - For those students who are below their target or expected grades but could improve and meet their targets with targeted intervention or support. AMBER Action Plan - For those students who are at their target grade but who could do better with targeted intervention or support. You simply fill in all necessary information on the template tables supplied and this offers excellent example of all the strategies you use to help your students and track each individuals progress. This are also excellent to show OFSTED inspectors. (We have recently had a full inspection) Enjoy, Claddagh Classrooms:)

Spanish / French (MFL) Feedback Stickers

Spanish / French (MFL) Feedback Stickers

These stickers save me massive amounts of time when marking. I print them out and after students complete a piece of written work they stick them in their books. I tick the WWW section (What went well for the students) and I write an EBI (Even better if). These have decreased my marking time and have given students constructive feedback for them to respond to. I have attached the .pub file for editing purposes and the .pdf for easy printing Claddagh Classrooms

Behaviour Goals / Targets

Behaviour Goals / Targets

As a department we use both these resources for students that need some extra attention at KS3 with behaviour. The first one is simple. Each individual teacher writes their own individual goals for their students and they monitor them each lesson. It is informal, in that, the class teacher does all monitoring and reacts accordingly with class sanctions and rewards. The second one is more formal. The student is monitored for a period of a week. At the end of the week, the pupil will report to HOD of department to get their report signed and will also get the report signed by their parents. In school we make a positive phone call home and give the student a normal school reward. There are two templates attached (One with more instruction than the other) All are in .doc format are editable for your own lesson / school needs.

La Comida GCSE 9-1- Food - Spanish Revision Tasks (Year 10/11 AQA Spec)

La Comida GCSE 9-1- Food - Spanish Revision Tasks (Year 10/11 AQA Spec)

Sometimes I find it difficult to give students revision tasks that will not require large amounts of printing and marking on my behalf. To overcome this I have recently tried this concept with my Year 10 group to help revise for their upcoming school assessments. Students have a sheet full of revision tasks. The tasks are divided into 3 groups and each group equates to set amount of time they should spend on a given task. The tasks vary from self assessing to peer assessing to resources they can create and use themselves in future. I have attached both .pdf and .doc for your editing needs. Claddagh Classrooms

An Cháisc (Gaeilge) - Easter Irish Display

An Cháisc (Gaeilge) - Easter Irish Display

Simple display cards to get your room and your students in the festive Easter spirit. My students love Easter! (It must be the chocolate!) and the display is nice when surrounded by students work. Alternatively use the activity attached also. I use these as a game first to introduce the vocabulary to my students. They are placed around my room and students are given a list of Easter vocabulary in English. They then have to find the Irish equivalent. It's nice to watch students discover the vocabulary themselves as opposed to looking at a PowerPoint and writing everything down in a vocabulary book. Once the lesson is finished they can go onto a display board. Please note this is a .pdf display only.
