Far Forest Lea MemorialCE Primary School



We teach content in small, manageable steps to reduce cognitive load. The French curriculum will ensure that children have the pre-requisite knowledge required in order to access new learning and concepts are revisited to ensure that children build on and retain what they have been taught in previous years. Retrieval practice will be used to support children transferring ideas from their working memory into their long term memory. Children will be given regular opportunities to retrieve through;


  • Quizzes
  • Making links across the curriculum
  • Memory games
  • Sharing and imparting their knowledge to others through presentations/assemblies.




More detail about how we will achieve our intent is outlined in our Curriculum Statement for French below.
