Through studying poetry and song, girls discover that French is fun and interesting and they develop verbal fluency and sophisticated writing skills. Pupils are encouraged to take part in slam and debating competitions as well as the Oxford University Essay competition. The Department also offers a wide range of activities from trips to film festivals and lectures with high profile linguists such as BBC commentators and industry leaders. In weekly sessions in our Language Laboratories we teach both a technical approach to translation and a more communicative approach to the language.
London, SW1P 3BT 20 December I have pleasure in enclosing my final report on the remit you gave me on 7 April to look into the scope for slimming down the National Curriculum and related issues. As you will recall, the Interim Report in July made a number of firm proposals on slimmed down national tests in the core subjects, and indicated a broad way forward on the National Curriculum.
This Report is concerned with developing that preliminary thinking on the National Curriculum into firm recommendations. It also makes recommendations to you and to the Secretary of State for Wales on the development of the quality and standing of teacher assessment; on reducing the work connected with that; and on the ten-level scale.
I have been consulted by the Curriculum Council for Wales on the assessment of Welsh second language, and endorse their advice. May I say how much I appreciated the encouragement from you to explore fully the issues opened up by the remit and to make substantive proposals to slim down the statutory curriculum.
The National Curriculum has the wide support of the teaching profession, but I believe it needs the kind of changes invited by your remit. I am much indebted to Chris Woodhead for his contribution to the Review and the preparation of this Report, and to my Authority colleagues, particularly those on the Advisory Group, for the time and wisdom they so generously offered.
While the responsibility for the Report is mine, I owe much to others, and particularly to the teachers who responded so fully to the opportunity to comment on the issues you raised.
