Modern Foreign Languages 2021 - 2022

Mrs Brown

Our St James curriculum is carefully designed to ensure coverage and progression. It builds on an expectation to develop children’s understanding of key vocabulary. Continuous revisiting of words allows knowledge to stick.  Key vocabulary is then extended, so that the children learn to speak in simple sentences.  As the children progress through their 4 years with us, they extend this learning to develop further listening, reading and writing skills in French.  In addition, we aim to share cultural experiences of France and bring learning alive through activities, such as creating and tasting French foods. We are lucky to be able to work closely with our Secondary counterparts at Whitehaven Academy in supporting our French Curriculum.

In all of our subjects, we use our collaborative approach named Learn 2 Learn, that puts collaboration and talk at the heart of learning.
