Languages – French

Our Aims

At Rosley CE School, we want our children to develop a love of language and nurture positive attitudes towards other languages, cultures and countries, as they grow and discover more about the wider world. It is an important part of living in a multi-cultural society and we actively plan links to raise awareness of cultural differences. An understanding of other languages is a key skill – for life!

Children in KS2 experience weekly French lessons which follow the Lancashire Scheme for French. The curriculum has been designed to develop the confidence to communicate in French for practical purposes, using spoken and written French. The scheme supports pupils to meet the National curriculum end of Key Stage 2 attainment targets. 

We strive to embed the skills necessary to allow children to use and apply their knowledge and understanding of their French learning in a variety of contexts. We aim to lay the foundations for future language learning, encouraging and enabling them to apply their skills to learning future languages when they transition to Secondary school, as well as developing a strong understanding of the English language, facilitating future study and opening opportunities to study and work in other countries in the future. 

Please find below the Progression in French documents, which show the key knowledge and skills covered across the school.
