We teach French in Year 3 - Year 6. Our language lessons are taught by the class teacher using the French language scheme Language Angels.
French is taught weekly in 45 minute class lessons, through stories, songs, poems and rhymes. The Language Angels scheme follows the objectives of the National Curriculum KS2 languages programme of study.
Our aim is to develop the confidence and competence of each child in French. Our goal is for them to be passionate, curious and confident about their own foreign language learning abilities when they finish the primary school phase of their education.
We will help them develop and demonstrate substantial progress in the 5 key language skills necessary for learning French:
We aim to ensure that pupils of all abilities develop solid foundations in these key language learning skills - properly preparing them for the next stage of their language learning journey. These skills will develop children’s ability to understand what they hear and read and enable them to express themselves in speech and writing. We will extend their knowledge of how language works and explore the similarities and differences between the foreign language they are learning and English. We will also help strengthen their sense of identity through learning about culture in other countries and comparing it with their own.
