Our French Intent
Our French curriculum aims to give children an awareness of other cultures and have the confidence and resilience to communicate in French for practical purposes, using both written and oral French. We aim to give pupils a foundation for language learning that encourages and enables them to apply their knowledge and skills - knowledge, skills and vocabulary that are built on from prior learning and repeated with increasing complexity.
In Year 4 this half term, the children have been learning about the topic French and the Eurovision Song Contest. The children have explored how to say different musical instruments. In French this week, the children have been learning how to ask each other what music genres they like. The children were also able to say whether they disliked a certain genre. Once the children had learnt the different phrases, the children went around the class and asked each other 'Quel genre de musique aimes-tu?' and filled a survey in, so that we could see how many people liked jazz music, how many people liked pop music, how many people liked classical music, how many people liked folk music and how many people liked rock music. The children really enjoyed this.
In Year 4, the children are learning about French Food this half term. In today's lesson, the children recapped numbers from 1-30, as well as learning about money and how to say it in French.
The children in Year 4 have had a lovely afternoon in French. To finish our French food unit this half term, the children have been finishing their menus and role playing a cafè. The children have had the opportunity to try a few French foods too. The children have really enjoyed this topic and enjoyed the croissants and pain au chocolat!
In French, we have learnt how to read, write and spell foods.
Year 5- French Speaking World
The children in Year 5 have been exploring the world, identifying countries that speak the French language. They have really enjoyed learning more about these countries and can now discuss important landmarks and climates.
