Workington pupils collaborate with others to ‘refresh’ their language skills
PUPILS in Workington had the opportunity to ‘refresh’ their language skills – whilst collaborating with pupils from across the West Cumbria region.
On Monday 24 January, pupils from across the Cumbria Education Trust came together online to take part in an online GCSE French masterclass.
The aim of this session was to provide students with the opportunity to work collaboratively and explore the requirements of the GCSE French course and how they can put themselves in the best possible position to reach the highest level possible and be the best they can be. . .
The session covered reading and listening strategies, but the emphasis was on speaking and writing.
The content covered higher level structures, vocabulary and tenses and how best to apply them.
Students from Workington Academy, William Howard School and Whitehaven Academy worked together and demonstrated excellent teamwork skills.
This session was extremely valuable, not only in terms of learning the language, but also in terms of leveraging technology to facilitate such a session which enabled pupils from Cumbria Education Trust to collaborate and share best practice .
Craig Hamilton, Deputy Head of Modern Languages School Improvement Team at Cumbria Education Trust, said: ‘It has been a pleasure to be able to bring this session to pupils from all our secondary schools and the commitment and l he enthusiasm shown by the students was really encouraging. ‘
