French

French is delivered across the 3 classes each week with Mrs Smith, who speaks French and practises her own language skills on her regular visits to France.  

The curriculum plan for Autumn and Spring this year will cover weather, days of week, colours, months, greetings, sport, all about me and fruits.

Depending on the age group, Mrs Smith encourages the pupils to say the words verbally, listening to her model the pronunciation.  The lower KS2 children are encouraged to write in French, embedding their spoken skills and the upper KS2 children are expected to conduct their own research on the subject, learning extra vocabulary.

Learning is evidenced in books and posters and wherever possible, French words are introduced across the curriculum as part of the topic learning.
