Woolsery Primary School: French
At Woolsery Primary School, we teach French as our chosen Modern Foregn Language. We follow the Primary Languages Network scheme across all year groups in Key Stage 2. Our intent is that children can begin learning a foreign language from an early age, along with the vital confidence and enthusiasm needed to become conversationally proficient.
Our Curriculum Intent for each of the four year groups is as follows:
Implementation and Impact:
We aim to teach French weekly in all Key Stage 2 classes and have chosen a scheme which allows for flexibility for mixed year group delivery and taking into account the impact of the global Pandemic. Children develop their skills in Reading, Speaking, Writing and Listening throughout this progressive curriculum model. Through their learning, children develop ability to communicate in French with the use of liguistically accurate videos, examples of written phrases and visual cues, all of which build in a spiraling curriculum. Common themes reappear in successive terms (food being a great example) and children are therefore able to draw upon and use previous learning when structuring their contributions.
