Learning a foreign language can be very liberating.
Learning a foreign language can be very liberating. Not only can it deepen a pupil’s understanding of the world, but it enables them to express themselves in another language and possibly equip them for future study or work in other countries.
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.
Historically both French and German have been taught in Key Stage 2 by a language specialist. In line with the new national curriculum 2014 only French will be taught from September. Themes are taught on a two year rolling programme. Lessons are well planned, engaging and offer opportunities for working with a partner and well as part of a group. The emphasis is on engaging children and building confidence. Traditional stories, drama, games and songs are part of the approach to teaching.
Topics to be covered will include –
Personal information including my family, pets, birthdays; food and drink, a trip to France, food shopping, a beach visit, buying souvenirs, where I live, Christmas and Easter.
