Our vision for Modern Foreign Languages is that children enjoy the challenge of learning to speak, listen to and understand a new language.  We want children to understand the importance of learning a second language and about other cultures.  We hope to inspire children to want to learn languages beyond primary school.  We would like lessons to be interactive, fun and engaging. 


In Key Stage 2 regular French lessons are scheduled. Planning for a unit of work is adapted from the PlanIt scheme of work.  A typical unit is structured in the following way:

  • Introduction of new vocabulary (listening, reading and speaking)

  • Games and activities to embed learning through listening, reading, writing and speaking. 

  • Songs and stories to put the vocabulary in context.

  • Written activities - such as writing simple sentences and using vocabulary to add labels. 

  • Role-play activities - such as shopping or meeting someone. 


A typical French lesson would:

  • Start with a retrieval activity (Can you Still?) to revisit prior learning (written or oral)

  • Introduction of new vocabulary for the week. 

  • Activity to embed the vocabulary in context. 

  • Question and answer activity with peers. 

  • An activity to apply their learning - such as a written activity or survey. 

  • Interactive games and reflection.
