Curriculum Intent for French

In Key Stage Two, the children are taught lessons in French with the aim of informing them of different countries and fostering a curiosity of learning about the wider world.  Lessons are taught in a fun way, often including games and songs, to help all learners remember and use the vocabulary. Real life situations enable children to put into practice both speech and writing. Our teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages

The children’s learning covers 3 main strands: Oracy, literacy and Intercultural. Children are taught the spoken language first and then move onto writing short sentences building up to writing short paragraphs.  Subjects include: counting, ordering food, describing objects and life in France.
