We believe that in today’s society it is essential that our pupils can not only learn about other cultures but also begin to communicate and express themselves in French. We want to help to create linguists who foster a love of and grow to enjoy learning languages through speaking, listening, reading and writing. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers.

We use interactive activities to encourage pupils to listen, read, write, chat and sing in French with fun digital activities, animations and games. We identify any gaps in learning and have a coherent progression of skills and knowledge from years 3-6, with twenty four units across four stages.
Our pupils will be given opportunities to explore the patterns and sounds of French through songs and rhymes, listen attentively and engage in conversations. They will begin to show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing whilst broadening their vocabulary.
We identify any gaps in learning with engaging challenges offering informal assessment opportunities.
Pupils will be supported to read, speak, write and respond to words and phrases from memory and adapt these to express ideas clearly.
