"Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures."
The intention of the French curriculum at Charlbury Primary is that children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and engaging. We strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language. We aim to develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries, through our protected characteristics, British values and curriculum enrichment opportunities. Skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and phonics will be embedded into the curriculum in order to enable children to use and apply their French learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
Our MFL curriculum is designed to progressively develop children’s skills in languages. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. We use 'Language Angels' Scheme of work to ensure key vocabulary and knowledge is progressed throughout KS2.
French is monitored by throughout KS2 using a variety of strategies such as book looks, lesson observations, staff discussions and pupil interviews.
