French is the chosen modern foreign language at our school. It is taught through the use of interactive resources, games and songs.
KS2 have weekly French teaching. Children develop their vocabulary and pronunciation skills, and gain an insight into the geography of France, French culture and way of life. The development of speaking and listening skills is key across the entire age range, and to this end, songs, games and role play feature highly. As children progress through Key Stage 2, the skills of reading and writing become increasingly important. Not only do they serve to help children memorise new language, but they also enable links to be made with grammar learned in the English curriculum. It is exciting to watch children discover that they can make use of their grammatical knowledge in another language.
