Modern Foreign Language – French

 At Trent, French begins in Year 2, where the children learn basic vocabulary through rhymes, songs, dance and movement and have fun.  Children are encouraged to understand and speak to each other in French, increasing their confidence and development of the language.  The children are encouraged to use any other languages they already speak to demonstrate and teach the rest of the class.

 The children learn to say numbers, colours and short phrases about themselves.  French songs are sung in Class Assembly and the Christmas play.

 At Key Stage 2 the children continue learning by increasing their vocabulary through practical and fun classwork, having simple conversations and to ask questions.  Pupils begin to look at how the language is written, start to read and understand phrases through stories songs and poems.  By the end of Year 6 children begin to write phrases from memory and to understand basic grammar and to look at verb formation.

Pupils in Year 5 are developing links with a primary school West of Paris this year.  Year 6 use their language knowledge to practise ordering food and drinks in Trent’s French Café.
