To ensure that all pupils:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.


Teaching & Learning

In our teaching of French, we provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language to enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary.

Pupils are taught to listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding. They explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words. They learn to engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others.
