At Copeland Road Primary School, we teach French to children in Key Stage Two. French is taught to KS2 pupils in weekly, discreet sessions, using the ‘Twinkl PlanIt’ French scheme of work to support our teaching and learning. This scheme covers all aspects within the National Curriculum, and revisits these over the four-year period, allowing children to build on their skills. Within these sessions we cover topic such as greetings, all about me, shopping, family and friends and school. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their speaking and listening skills through conversational work, singing activities and games. As their confidence and skill grows, children record their work through pictures, captions and sentences.
When children leave Copeland Road Primary we would like them to be able to:
- 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.
- 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.
The long term plan for MFL is below as well as the National Curriculum. There may be changes to the long term plan as we continue to recover our curriculum after National lockdowns.
