We encourage children’s confidence and we strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language. We actively plan links to develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries, through our protected characteristics, British values and curriculum enrichment opportunities. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
A typical French lesson includes development of pronunciation through learning French phonic sounds. New vocabulary introduced along with appropriate grammar rules which is then applied to conversation or writing skills. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences.
