At Holy Rood, all pupils in Key Stage 2 will benefit from the rich cultural experience of learning French. We aim to foster an interest in language learning by introducing our pupils to a progressively challenging programme of study that is accessible for all. Units of work such as ‘Around Town’, ‘Holidays and Hobbies’ and ‘Shopping’ are repeated from year to year, becoming progressively more challenging and deepening the pupils’ vocabulary. Our teaching aims to support both oracy and written literacy in French.
Our school recognises that the learning of another language also aids our pupils’ understanding of their own language as well as preparing them to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work, and other activities are increasingly carried out in languages other than English. Our French teaching offers a further opportunity to our pupils to consolidate their understanding of key grammatical terms (such as word classes and phrase classes) that they first encounter in their English lessons.
At Holy Rood, our curriculum intends to create an interest and appetite for French and language learning that they can carry with them from their primary to secondary phase of education.
