French

At Highfields we teach another language to provide a valuable, social and cultural experience for pupils. We hope to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. During lessons, pupils are enabled to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and are encouraged to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. We also  provide opportunities for pupils to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language. We hope to Pupils develop linguistic competence that lay the foundation for future language learning.

At Highfields Primary School, children are introduced to French core vocabulary and phonetics from Reception to Year 6.  For Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, lessons are once a week and last 30 minutes.  This is supplemented wherever possible with short sessions within the routine class environment.   Please click on the link below for a curriculum overview.  

 

Aims

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.
