At Knighton Mead, our modern foreign language curriculum ensures that all pupils broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words.
Children will be able to speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures. They will be able to engage in conversations; ask and answer questions though stories, songs, poems and rhymes.
French is introduced for all children at the beginning of Year 3 and progressed over the four years the children are at Knighton Mead. French is taught once a week. Children are exposed to some basic grammar rules alongside interactive language learning through a wide range of topics and themes.
The emphasis is on oral activities, but the children will develop the oracy and literacy skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing a foreign language, through a variety of activities including songs, puppet work, role play, games and reading and writing stories.
These aim to develop confidence and enjoyment of learning a foreign language, as well as enabling children to communicate in French.

|Year Group||Autumn 1||Autumn 2||Spring 1||Spring 2||Summer 1||Summer 2|
