In KS2 children learn French, and develop the ability and confidence to speak with good pronunciation, whilst developing an awareness of the culture. They acquire the ability to use language creatively and develop an interest for languages, which we hope will remain with them as they progress through their school life.
French is predominately taught through singing, role play and conversations in groups or with partners, making themselves understood. Children are also encouraged to read sentences and short texts to show their understanding.
As their French language develops the children will begin to show an understanding of basic grammar, write short sentences adapting the language they know to describe people, places, transport, festivals and celebrations. We use the Twinkl scheme to teach the language, along with other resources: books, games and bilingual dictionaries
We also take part in the European Day of languages where pupils have the opportunity to study the language and cultures of another country.
