What is literacy
What is Literacy?


Make a list of activities you’ve

used or seen used in (English)

Literacy lessons.

Swap lists with another group. Decide how many could be used in an MFL lesson.



Discuss & record the concerns you or other teachers may have when it comes to the teaching of reading and writing in foreign language.

‘Despite the fact that we recognise the importance of children acquiring these skills, there is no doubt that their introduction seems to conjure up feelings of concern. They have come to be labelled as more difficult & less enjoyable elements of the language learning process which often seems to fill both teachers & pupils with fear & trepidation. For too long we have concentrated disproportionately on listening & speaking, to the detriment of the other two skills.’

Christina Skarbek, First Steps to Reading and Writing, CILT Pathfinder.

Why literacy
Why Literacy?

It can help reinforce skills in the mother tongue.

It is useful preparation for learning a MFL in KS3 & KS4.

Written communication is all around & can’t be ignored.

Oracy is insufficient if we’re to cater for children of ALL learning styles.

If it’s taught using dynamic & varied methods, it can be fun

Writing doesn’t have to involve a pen & paper.
