French is Fun!
Children at Our Lady Immaculate School learn French as their Modern Foreign Language from Year 3 to Year 6. Our aim is to promote an open and positive attitude towards all foreign languages and cultures, as well as encouraging the children to achieve their own potential in speaking and writing French. We do this by harnessing the children’s natural curiosity about the lives and achievements of different French speakers across the globe, as well as by developing their awareness of French vocabulary and grammar.
The planning is progressive and provides the children with weekly opportunities to hear native speakers and read authentic texts. The children are introduced to French grammar and how it is constructed through: songs, games, role-play and stories. Throughout Key Stage Two the children gain the necessary knowledge to begin to speak and write French so that by the end of year 6 they are ready for secondary school.
