Modern Foreign Languages (French)
Learning a foreign language is part of the primary National Curriculum and is a requirement for all children within key stage 2 (KS2). Parkend School has adopted a whole school approach to the teaching of French to all KS2 pupils. Children begin formal learning in KS2 in line with the National Curriculum expectations but are often introduced to some basic French words in KS1.
Throughout KS2, our children have weekly French lessons. To support teaching and learning in French, we use a program called ‘Language Angels’. This is an interactive program which engages our children, allows them to hear the correct pronunciation of French words and phrases and uses these words across a range of games and activities.
By learning French in this way, our children will become confident when speaking and listening, reading and writing. They will develop the knowledge and skills to converse in another language.
