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. 

Shopping in France

The children used their counting skills to practice French money and then named fruit in French. They used these skills to ask the price of items at a French fruit market. Then, by exploring a traditional French text, they were able to identify cognates and near-cognates in a recipe.

Languages Trip to McAuley

The children in year 5 really enjoyed a trip to McAuley to take part in a Languages day run by staff at the school. The children began the day with a continental breakfast and received a bag of with their very own learning passport as well as a pencil and ruler to help them with their learning.

They took part in French and Spanish lessons and finished the day off with other schools in a quiz to show off all their learning.

Take a look at our amazing day!

Space Exploration in French

Year 5 identified planetary objects in our solar system in small groups and the explored the solar system further by watching a video from the European Space Agency in French and matched the French pronunciations to the English words. The children then compared the planets to each other and created a 'Galaxy Guide' using the vocabulary they had learnt.

Year 4 - French and the Eurovision Song Contest

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. 

Year 4 - French Food

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.
