Modern Foreign Languages - French 2023 - 2024

Miss Pool

Our St James curriculum is designed to ensure coverage and progression. It’s intent is to develop children’s ability to read fluently, write imaginatively, speak confidently while also being aware of the culture of countries where French is spoken. We will support children in their ability to speak with good intonation and pronunciation while also helping to develop a passion for language and their enthusiasm in this subject. In all of our subjects, we use our collaborative approach named Learn 2 Learn, that puts collaboration and talk at the heart of learning. Continuous recapping and revisiting of units of work taught will ensure knowledge sticks with the children so they can build upon their learning as they progress through the school. In addition, we aim to share cultural experiences of France and bring learning alive through activities, such as creating and tasting French foods.
