At Becket Primary School we aim for a high-quality French education that foster pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world and other cultures.
Through learning a foreign language they will deepen their empathy of their peers for whom English is an additional language.
They will be given opportunities to express their ideas and thoughts, by listening to French speakers and providing verbal and written responses.
By the time they leave, pupils will have the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and experience aspects of life and culture in other countries.
French is a discrete, flexible foundation subject taught in KS2 which comes under the Historical, Geographical and Social Understanding area of learning. In French the LCP scheme of work is followed and there are two files. Units 1-12 are covered in year 3 /4, units 13-24 are covered in year 5 and 6. Children will have the opportunity to listen, read, write and respond in French and are assessed in these areas.
