At Far Forest Primary School,we recognise that the teaching of subjects through recognising key skills and knowledge allows for a deeper understanding. We have identified 4 key concepts through which our French curriculum is planned and delivered.
Our French curriculum is planned by using the Language Angels scheme, this ensures the content allows children to develop their understanding of key concepts and to practise key skills. Topics that are selected for French come under the following categories:
Children learn a number of skills in French lessons. We have identified four key skills that children will learn. These skills are progressive as children move from Year 3 to Year 6.
During French lessons there are opportunities for children to engage in a number of activities. We believe that the teaching of MFL prepares children well to be global citizens. They gain an understanding of life in France and French culture and how this is similar and different to life in the UK. All French lessons are interactive to allow for high engagement and participation. Children play games, sing songs, repeat words and phrases and engage in group and paired conversations. Children learn a range of words in French and how to pronounce these accurately. When learning new words, these are broken down into phonemes to support reading and pronunciation.
