Our curriculum aims to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Our teaching aims to enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language, predominately French, and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. We provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read literature in the original language. Our language teaching aims to provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
Our curriculum for languages aims 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
