Foreign Languages

The national 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.

It should enable pupils to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focused on familiar and routine matters, using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary. The focus of study in modern languages will be on practical communication.

 

French is the agreed transition language in Norfolk. We use a mixture of resources to teach a weekly French lesson within Key Stage 2 - Eurostars, Chatterbox and Salut! Ca va? As the children move from Y3/4 into Y5/6 they progress from colours, numbers and days and months (orally) to short conversations including hobbies, weather and writing the date.
