At Castle Hill we use the Language Angels scheme of work. As all the classes in Key Stage Two are starting to learn at the same time, they are all starting from the starting point. Each year, we will build on this learning. This is outlined in the accompanying table which shows how the units of work will be built up over four years.
The children learn vocabulary and grammar rules so that they can create short phrases and sentences. To help develop and embed vocabulary, lessons include talking time, songs, games and quizzes. Over time, pupils also learn to read and write short passages in French. Each year, lessons include some sessions on phonics in French, to help children to read and write unfamiliar words.
Alongside learning the language of France, children also develop an understanding of French culture and traditions.
