Introducing Spoken Language in KS3

It's a complete 'no-brainer' to introduce KS3 pupils to spoken language, and this resource facilitates that very well. N Timmis, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Fun, stimulating and ready-to-use activities to introduce Spoken Language at KS3 and also prepare students for GCSE Spoken Language from September 2015. Activities cover the skills needed to:

  • Communicate and adapt language
  • Interact and respond
  • Create and sustain roles

The wide-range of activities allow students to:

  • Take part in discussions
  • Work in pairs or groups
  • Analyse various forms of spoken language
  • Play educational active learning games
  • Write essays
  • Present to the rest of the class
  • Take part in scripted and unscripted performances
  • Review and improve their own performance

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5911)
"Given the focus on Spoken Lanugage at GCSE, it is nice to see a resource that prepares pupils at KS3. On the whole the activities are engaging and educationally valuable." P Doorbar, English Teacher
"It's a complete 'no-brainer' to introduce KS3 pupils to spoken language, and this resource facilitates that very well. There is a good range of activities to choose from - and nice to see 'speaking and listening', as well as 'spoken word' is included." N Timmis, English Teacher
"The resource provides engaging activities which act as a good introduction to Spoken Language Study and as a foundation for study at GCSE." K Young, English Teacher
"A nice range of activities exploring speaking and listening with clear links to skills needed at GCSE, and even A Level Language. It builds on skills bit-by-bit and is appropriately challenging. A refreshingly comprehensive resource that considers progression." A Baiden, English Teacher
"This resource will be useful to any department as it is an excellent resource for students to study spoken language. Students will enjoy the tasks in this resource pack and there is a good range of support. It has given me some ideas of tasks I can use in other units of work to ensure spoken language is studied consistently throughout the year. I especially like the task based on Halle Berry’s reaction to winning an Oscar. This is something students would enjoy as well as the lead up tasks which asks them to observe the behaviour of people in their class. The resource allows students to reflect on their own performance and set themselves clear targets. This is a perfect example of a bridging unit which will prepare your students fully for GCSE." K Greaves, English Teacher
