All children at The Meads will have the opportunity to cultivate an interest in French and make good progress in developing their language skills. There will be clear progression throughout the school and each year group will be encouraged to listen, respond and enjoy experiencing learning another language. The curriculum will provide a balance of spoken and written activities to allow our children to develop a strong foundation for further language learning in KS3. The curriculum will encourage the children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.
Learning a new language should be fun, so children will use role play to build their confidence and sing songs in French, which helps to master intonation and pronunciation. Learning a new language instils self- confidence and provides opportunities to learn about other cultures and countries.
