We learn French as our modern foreign language in Key Stage 2.
Class teachers teach French for 30 minutes every week following the topics that are set for their year group taken from the Lightbulb Languages scheme of work. This allows for progression from year group to year group.
We aim to promote enjoyment of language learning through songs, games and cross curricular links to other subjects.
We hope our children develop the language skills to interact with a French native speaker and appreciate French culture.
Our learning makes links to our local area and we celebrate French traditions at Christmas time and Bastille Day.
The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
- speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
- can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
- discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
