We have chosen to teach French, partly because this subject is available at the local secondary schools and partly due to staff interest, ability and experience.
Although formal teaching of French doesn’t begin until Year 3, our younger pupils are exposed to the language through basic vocabulary and activities, such as answering the register by saying, ‘Bonjour.’
All pupils in KS2 have a weekly French lesson. We have chosen to follow the North Yorkshire County Council scheme of learning for French, which is divided into units, as shown on the overview below.
We believe that it is important for our pupils to develop their cultural understanding, alongside the communication skills the French curriculum develops. All pupils have access to events throughout the year, including our annual ‘Christmas around the world’ event, where pupils and their families have the opportunity to learn how Christmas is celebrated in other countries.
