French is taught with a termly theme and is designed to encompass the four key skill areas of language learning; speaking, listening, reading and writing, along with both grammatical and cultural focuses.
Lessons are delivered in an active and engaging way with a high emphasis on the spoken and written language and learning about the countries where the language is spoken through the variety of topics covered. We aim to enrich our study of French through a variety of trips and activities.
In the Junior School we are enabling pupils to have a strong foundation in the subject through revisiting and building on basic language and grammar points as they progress from Years 5-6.
At KS3 we study a variety of topics that help develop and prepare the pupils to study the language at GCSE as well as giving the pupils plenty of opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of French culture and traditions.
