Writing gives learners the opportunity to find ways of expressing their ideas in a foreign language. Writing gives learners the opportunity to try out the language with plenty of thinking time. A learner’s writing gives the teacher a good opportunity to diagnose grammar and vocabulary problems and to identify progress. Writing allows learners to practice new structures in an extended context. Writing can provide more variety in classwork Mark Hancock and Annie McDonald
Reading and writing are supported by, and reinforce, the development of oracy. In KS1 or lower KS2 – children begin to understand the letters and phonics of the MFL – this is later applied in their reading and spelling. Introducing reading and writing skills from the start is essential. By upper Key Stage 2, children are able to read and produce longer and more complex structures. Children will begin to access texts independently for their own enjoyment.
