Hampshire Suggested End-of-Year 6 Transfer Agreement for Languages

Rationale:to improve transition from KS2 to KS3 in Languages

‘Every child should have the opportunity throughout Key Stage 2 to study a foreign language and develop their interest in the culture of other nations. They should have access to high quality teaching and learning opportunities, making use of native speakers and e-learning. By age 11 they should have the opportunity to reach a recognised level of competence on the Common European Framework and for that achievement to be recognised through a national scheme. The Key Stage 2 language learning programme must be delivered at least in part in class time.’ – KS2 Entitlement to Languages
Secondary schools welcome many children from numerous primaries every September with varying experience of language-learning at KS2. It is right that Primary schools should decide which schemes and approaches are best for their own children and staff but a degree of commonality is needed for KS3 to be able to build upon this experience and to avoid restarting from scratch. The following is a minimum of prior learning for Year 6 to have achieved over the entire 4 years at KS2. We have deliberately avoided the mention of ANY topics and instead stress dictionary skills.
Yr.6 children should know these core structures well after 4 yrs of entitlement: There is no requirement for any particular vocabulary nor for any particular topic area as all these structures are flexible and can be used in many scenarios. Any additional language to this list is to be considered a bonus and non-essential.
