We follow the National Curriculum’s Modern Foreign Language through teaching French as our chosen language to study. Pupils will have the opportunity to take part in whole days dedicated to leaning about the French culture and its wonderful language. Year 6 pupils will be invited to attend a residential to France.
All Key Stage 2 pupils study French including those who have SEN and/or disabilities and those who are disadvantaged. Pupils will understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources, speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation, write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt and discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
Knowledge and skills are constantly revisited and refreshed to ensure that they become embedded. To aid understanding subject specific vocabulary is taught explicitly within every lesson.
We have created end points for each topic and milestones for the end of each year to show what pupils should know and can do. As the children move to the next year group, the teacher then knows where to start.
Pupils come from a mixed urban area of Wirral. The children also have the opportunity to discover an entirely new and exciting culture. To enhance pupil’s capital culture they will study French poets, authors, artists, musicians, food, towns and cities. Our core values; resilience, respect and responsibility are continually developed through all art learning experiences.
