Planning with the Framework

Planning for the incidental: using language in everyday routines

Rha Nov 06

Timing & timetabling!

Part 2 Framework

  • Primary Language Learning – An introduction to the Framework for all users. P.9

    “ …schools will plan for no less than 60 minutes per week of dedicated ‘language time’. This might be divided into relatively short sessions, for example:

  • 15 minutes per day

  • 3 x 20 minutes

  • 2 x 30 minutes plus one shorter session of 10 minutes

    In addition to this dedicated time allocation, teachers

    should seek opportunities during the week to enable

    children to use their newly acquired language skills….”

Timing & timetabling!

Part 2 Framework

2. Co-ordinating Provision – Advice for Head Teachers,

Senior Managers and Subject Co-ordinators p.25

“ The Framework encourages schools to integrate

language learning into the existing curriculum as much as

possible. Through a combination of dedicated language

lessons, teaching language through other subjects areas,

and using language for real purposes in daily classroom

routines, schools have found that they can meet the

recommended time allocation of 60 minutes…..”
