Aims and our philosophy:

Nowadays, understanding a foreign language and culture is fundamental and essential to be able to succeed in a society. That is why, in French we aim to equip our students with a solid background and knowledge to make them able to enjoy international relations either in their professional and /or personal lives. We want our students to be able to form lasting relationships with those from other countries and to understand that international links are invaluable to us in business and in friendship.  In our lessons, we strive to challenge our students, to engage them in stimulating dialogues, to peak their interest and to help them to become independent learners.

Our year 7 are introduced to Languages in doing the carousel for the first |Term. When they dodo French they discover the language through the discovery of French Art. Over the course of our three year key stage 3 course, our students learn how to read and write in French. They learn how to introduce themselves, greet their friends and build their vocabulary among different topics such as their house, school and free time. They also learn how to express their opinions and to link their ideas which are essential expressing their ideas.   In year 8 our students continue to develop their own skills and knowledge of the language as they discover new topics and vocabulary such as family and friends and their daily routine. They also discover new structures to be able to improve their use of the language. In year 9 they explore more different and global topics such as the environment, ecological problems, holidays fashion and work. More than about a language it is also about thinking as responsible citizens. Through such topics they also keep on developing their knowledge of the language and of the culture as they become able to express their own ideas and opinions in detail. They acquire more knowledge of the grammar and structure patterns of French.

Students study the GCSE AQA specification which builds on their knowledge gained in KS3 and enables them to meet new and exciting topics alongside familiar topics which are then explored further and in more depth.  Students continue to gain confidence in all four language skills, increasing their vocabulary base and enabling them to write longer written assessment and read extended texts. We aim to develop a deeper understanding of grammar and the structures that underpin the language. Our teaching and learning continues to involve a wide range of challenging, fun and engaging activities.  Students are expected to consolidate their learning at home by independently reviewing each lesson and completing all homework and the online website designed by examination officer to practice listening, reading and writing skills on the various topics they learn.

In our highly challenging AS course we target such areas as grammar, essay writing, listening and reading comprehension in great depth. Students are expected to work independently outside the classroom to consolidate their knowledge and understanding of these key areas.  In Year 13 our students focus on the areas such as politics, worldwide issues and religion, customs and traditions as well as preparing a debate for their oral examination. They also have to do a research project on either a geographical region/city, historic study, on aspects of modern society or or a film, literature or the arts of their choice.. The students are also given the opportunity to go on work experience in France through a reliable company.

 

 

French outside the Classroom:

 

For Hendon student studying AS or A2 French we give the possibility of doing a work placement in France through specialized companies in France as well as giving opportunity to all students to exchange emails or letters with French students from schools in France. Moreover we enable our students to discover more about French culture through films, music, TV programs, newspapers, magazines and literature. We are furthermore launching new opportunities for independent study outside the classroom through our KS3 independent homework projects.

Mathematics

 

Aims and our philosophy

Mathematical thinking is important for all members of a modern society as a habit of mind for its use in the workplace, business and finance, and for personal decision-making. Mathematics is fundamental to national prosperity in providing tools for understanding science, engineering, technology and economics. It is essential in public decision-making and for participation in the knowledge economy. At Hendon School the Mathematics Department strives to equip pupils with uniquely powerful ways to describe, analyse and change the world.

Key Stage 3 – Years 7 – 8

In 2012-13 84% of our Year 9 students achieved a level 5+.
When students first start at Hendon they are taught in their form groups for the first half term. At the end of this half term students will be given a short test to see how well they have settled into their secondary maths education. Though students should prepare for this test it is not something that they should become unduly worried about.
We use a variety of data to place students into sets that will meet their needs in mathematics. The national curriculum is followed in each class and therefore the same topics are covered in each set. The difference is the speed at which these topics are covered and the depth they are able to reach.


Set 1 Extension
Set 2 Core
Set 3 Core
Set 4 Support

In Year 9 we are able to teach the whole group at the same time and so the setting is slightly different.

Enrichment

The enrichment element to the mathematics teaching at Hendon incorporates exploration and development of deep thinking skills for all students. Gifted and Talented groups, STEM sessions and the UK Maths Challenge form part of the ‘in-house’ training. Outside activities are also organised including lectures by expert speakers and Master Class sessions at the Royal Institution. Our philosophy is to broaden and deepen the students understanding of the scale of the subject and to nurture the joy and fulfilment of this experience.
