Primary Foreign Languages
We teach French as our Primary foreign language. In KS1 and YR, where there is no statutory requirement, we do occasional songs and rhymes and studies of aspects of French geography and culture within our Global Awareness sessions. In KS2, the children are taught basic French vocabulary and phrases. The majority of the teaching and learning is oral with an emphasis on trying to use the target language as much as possible throughout the lesson by the time the children are in Y5/6. The emphasis is on the children developing confidence to try out phrases and pronunciation without inhibition in preparation for more in-depth language studies at high school. We teach through a range of games, role play, reading, speaking and listening activities and writing.
