In our teaching of Languages, we want children to have an understanding of the importance of learning another language, the enjoyment this can bring and the access this brings to our wider world avoiding cultural insularity. Through our curriculum, we focus on teaching the three pillars of language learning (phonics, vocabulary and grammar) and aim to develop children who are confident to communicate in another language by the end of Key Stage Two.  


The curriculum is planned so children build up their knowledge and understanding of phonics, vocabulary and grammar in the French language. The teaching incorporates the four modalities of language – speaking, listening, reading and writing. They develop confidence in speaking French through rhythmic songs, deliberate actions, games, dialogue with the teacher and role play. Once our children reach Years 5 and 6 develop their writing skills through consolidating oral work done in class. There is planned practice and purposeful repetition, allowing the children to frequently revisit prior learning and have secure building blocks of knowledge to add new learning.
